(2012 Vintage) Color: Deep red with dark purple hints. Nose: Dense nose full of black and red fruit aromas such as plums; dry tea leaves and tobacco flavors. Palate: Good tannic structure. Concentrated body with balance and length. Round mid palate with a long lasting finish.
Wine Spectator(2006 Vintage) Really juicy and ripe, with fleshy layers of sweet raspberry and boysenberry fruit riding along red licorice, fruitcake and a nicely embedded vanilla streak. Long, polished finish. Very tasty.
