SnoothSolid intensity of classic dark cherry, prune, tobacco, leather, moist earth, damp tea leaves and smoky oak and a touch of camphor. Very smooth entry, a touch soft in acidity which is subsumed in the slightly chewy, dark fruits but pops on the mid-palate. The tannins are crisp and subtle offering good support until they break through the fruit on the backend with bright sour red berry fruit and a touch of cocoa. Dark and earthy with a touch of cedar cigar box and nice silica rich earth notes on the long, very savory, cocoa tinged slightly hot finish with a lovely bitter almond finale. This is fairly resolved read more...and will benefit from another year or 3 in the cellar but will not make old bones. Drink 2010-2018 93pts (hide)
