(2005 Vintage) AROMAS: Dark cherries, cola nut, leather and a sweet spiciness predominate. As the wine breathes, dark berries and earthy tones start to emerge, giving way to sweet black cherry, hints of smoke and white chocolate accents. FLAVORS: The wine begins with sweet cherries and currents. Then flavors of berries, pomegranates, mushrooms and smoky oak combine with spices and elegant tannins to stretch the mid palate, ending in a luscious finish. The balanced acidity and tannin structure will allow this wine to improve with additional cellaring.
