"Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and mocha aromas are given punch by herbs and spicy oak. Supple, moderately sweet, concentrated wine with lovely texture and depth to its berry, plum, tobacco and coffee flavors. A mouthfilling, sappy blend with lovely inner-mouth violet lift and substantial but smooth tannins for support. Not at all outsized but suave and sexy now, if in dry, savory style. This sophisticated wine finishes with good subtle persistence.- Stephen Tanzer"
