(2009 Vintage) This vintage is brimming with aromas of cassis and blackberry pie and expresses aromas of black fruit, white chocolate and toasted almonds. Round and soft on the palate, opulent flavors of dark bing cherry, jam, and caramel lead to a velvety finish.
mushroom subtly, earthy, no long finish, very high alcohol, no acidity, slightly smokey
Liked it. Don't know why anymore but I very much enjoyed the wine.
awesome wine great with the ribeyes we had. great steak wine
very dry, not a lot of personality
