90 Points

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - This bottle was opened two nights ago at my wedding, but wasn't finished. It's drinking wonderfully tonight. It's got a luscious strawberry and cherry nose. The palate erupts with cherry, strawberry, dark chocolate and just the right amount of oak. The lengthy finish evolves from sweet cherry to an herby flavor, to smoke, and then back to a lovely candied fruit taste. The balance of fruit, alcohol, acid and tannin is perfect - everything is in its right place. This is outstanding wine at the three-year mark.
