Dark red, almost garnet hue with bright red on the rim. Ripe cherry and cedar on the nose with hints of dried rose petal and sweet oak. Lovely entry that leads into a fat and savory mid palate. Ripe fig and black currant dominate the finish with a breadth of soft, well integrated tannins.
5/20 at George's. Pre birthday dinner at M. Very dark pour. Stronger than anticipated. Bold and mighty
Nice smooth full body. Great for the price!
An all-time favorite.
