 Tasted by bjamesclark on 7/1/2012 & rated 88 points: Garnet in color (with visible sediment in the bottle noticed as pouring into decanter).
On the nose raspberry aromas remain focused, with black pepper and chili pepper notes that are consistent with previous tasting notes.
The palate still has nice acidity, with spicy flavors of fresh raspberries, currant and cherry. Woody undertones are present and pleasant. The finish is short but enjoyable (1290 views)
