Aromas of red fruit, plums and cassis mixed with sweet spices, vanilla and toasty notes. The mouth shows perfect balance with creamy, velvety round tannins. Ideal with red meats.
Wine Spectator(2006 Vintage) Really juicy and ripe, with fleshy layers of sweet raspberry and boysenberry fruit riding along red licorice, fruitcake and a nicely embedded vanilla streak. Long, polished finish. Very tasty.
