90 Points

Monday, April 8, 2013 - The wine is a deep, dark, inky purple to black color. The dark and inviting nose has black berries, black pepper, smoked meat, dark bittersweet chocolate, melted licorice, Asian spices, dried herbs, and a touch of earthiness. This has a fairly full body, fairly solid, ripe tannins, and good acidity. The palate has some nice up front berries, but loads of smoked meat, black pepper, dark chocolate, and earthiness take over fairly quickly. The finish has nice length and again features the savory elements with the fruit adding a nice jolt of sweetness. This is in a real nice place but should last another couple of years in the cellar.
