Lush and juicy with ripe plum and blackberry fruit; smooth, dense and nicely structured with notes of coffee spice and cedar; a charming, deep wine with a long finish and lovely balance.
This wine wasn't all that special. It was drinkable. Although when I did the gurgle thing where you snell the flavors it really shone, and it was balanced none of the promise of the scents really came through. since the review says it is a good wine to sit on maybe it just needed mire time for the flavors to really come through.
While this wine is rich and full-flavored, there's a bit of a disagreeable hard edge that aeration doesn't dispel. Maybe it needs to age longer than 5 years? (Drank it in 2012)
