13.7% abv. Medium dark ruby. Expressive and penetrating claret aromas. On the palate cassis, leather and a little minty spice. Flavored are intense, but show finesse and balance. Great depth, nice and long. Excellent now and will improve.
Dark garnet, almost opaque, long lasting legs, aroma of fresh cherries, freezer jam, with a hint of dusty pepper, pure fruit taste with an amazing smooth rich rolling feel, deep tannins containing the acid, very broad on the tongue with a tangy finish. Different aromas and flavors with each sip: heath, glue, pure delicious juice, espresso.
Visit to Arnot-Roberts (Arnot-Roberts, Sonoma, CA): Ripe blackberry and cassis nose. Medium to full bodied with medium acidity. Black plum and blackberry fruit is a bit deeper than the Fellom Ranch and moderate tannins provide significantly more structure. Really tasty but probably better in a few years.
