classic nose wafts from the glass in a blend of black plums, red and black
cherries, abeautifully complex base of soil, woodsmoke, grilled meats and a
deft framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock
solid at the core, with fine complexity,impressive focus and grip, fine-grained
tannins and outstanding length and grip on the poisedand primary finish.
