(2011 Vintage) Bright medium ruby. Aromas of black plum, dark cherry and mocha are complicated by musky, smoky spices. Silky and sweet but with good juicy clarity and lift to the perfumed flavors of raspberry, black cherry, menthol, tobacco and peppery herbs. Finishes with rather suave tannins and very good verve and sneaky length.
Immediate full body Napa blackberry, current etc., note of acidty remains ...nicely full throught palate range...smooth. Very well-rounded... maybe be better in 3-6 yrs.
Also drank 2011--Blend:CS, M, CF, PV, MB with flavors of mocha, black cherry, warm spices
smooth real easy to drink
