Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) This supple red shows dark smoke, licorice and espresso flavors, with dried cherry and tobacco notes. This offers lively acidity, enough tannin for grip and a smoky finish.

    Very berry. I smell/taste a touch of leather, Brian thinks tobacco. Quick finish that's all berry. Corked for another night. Similar taste next night. Finish has some spice. This is one of our favorites.
