Deep, dark reddish-purple garnet in color with slight clearing at the edges. Forward, fragrant, attractive and complex nose of ripe fruit aromas of dark cherries, cassis and black plums with cedar & earthy overtones, dark cocoa, some tobacco notes, dried herbs, minerals, some spices, vanilla and toasted oak in the background. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of balanced, smooth textured, ripe dark fruit flavors of dark cherries, blackberries & cassis with dark cocoa, herbs, minerals, earthy, spices and toasty oak in the background. Long lingering smooth finish. Drinks quite well at present and should hold onto its current plateau for a few more years although any further development would be minimal.
