Friday, July 4, 2014 - The bottom line: this wine has gusto with a good deal of longevity to carry it through for at least five more years. The color is a deep ruby with a tinge of brown at the rim. The nose is a bit tight showing leather, raw meat, violet, and dark berries. The palate boasts cherry, dark berries, and licorice but the fruit is not overbearing. Add to that black pepper, mushroom, some violet, and green pepper. What makes it for me is the hint of bitterness, the well balanced acidity, and the firm yet silky tannins that give the wine gusto. Enjoy it with a nice piece of grilled meat. An excellent companion to a well-seasoned pepper steak.
