    Deep red. Strong, varietally accurate scents of cigar box, plum, dried herbs, roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. Medium in weight, with fresh red and dark berry flavors complemented by assertive herb and underbrush tones, with a fairly strong overlay of vanillin oak. Firm, building tannins provide structure on the fairly earthy finish.
