(2008 Vintage) Appearance: Deep, dark opaque garnet. Aroma: Exotic spice, toast and hints of tobacco and mint. Flavor: Ripe red and dark berry fruit with spicy notes. Round mid palate with elegant yet powerful tannins.
Solid wine. Not my type, though. Carmenere influence is obvious with pungent spice and tire factory aromas. ;)
A little spicy with heavy fruit flavor on the back of the tongue.
wsj medium dark fruit
