(2013 Vintage) Aromas and flavors included baked apple and peach and honey. It had low acidity, a long finish, and noticeable alcohol. With vanilla bean ice cream, the dairy softened the presence of alcohol, while the sweetness of the ice cream enhanced citrus fruit flavors on the palate.
Darker ruby red with substantial legs. Cigar, chocolate, vanilla and cherries dominate the nose. Cherry, leather and a bit of heat on the toungue. Excellent balance with the acid and tannins in harmony with the fruit. Great mouthfeel with a good 30 second finish. Excellent wine.
