International Wine Cellar(2001 Vintage) Bright ruby-red. Sexy, highly aromatic nose combines wild berry liqueur, smoke, leather, earth, coffee, meat and licorice. Lush, suave and smooth, with broad, silky flavors of raspberry and smoked meat. Rich but not especially sweet thanks to firm acids. Conveys an impression of concentration and extract perfectly supported by spine. Finishes broad but shapely, with firm tannins and excellent length.
