    01/15 Beautiful nose. Nice balance leaning towards fruits. Held well with fine Indian cuisine.

    Deep ruby. Strikingly complex, full-blown bouquet encompasses a broad array of dark fruits and spices, with forest floor accents adding intrigue. Intense, almost sweet cassis, blackberry, kirsch and candied licorice flavors are complemented but not overshadowed by spicy vanillin oak. Finishes with solid but deftly integrated tannins and outstanding persistence. Very, very impressive.
