    September 18, 2016 - - Garnet color. It's balanced with a full body. Bright texture with a long finish - Wow... rich in flavors, smooth fruit/ berries with a hint of vanilla. Long finish.

    The wine looks inky colored. It smells like red currant, blackberry, stoniness and espresso. It tastes like chocolate. The body is medium/full. The wine finishes medium.

Where you could taste the pencil shavings and touch of graphite the others had a medley of secondary flavors and aromas. This was completely solid though just not in the company of the others.
