"aged in a combination of French and American oak): Medium ruby. Musky aromas of blackberry, blueberry, mocha, spices and minerals, complicated by a varietally expressive whiff of meat. Velvety-smooth and nicely concentrated, displaying noteworthy savory lift to its black fruit, violet and leather flavors. Finishes lively and long, with supple tannins and good peppery lift and length. - Stephen Tanzer"
