Up front fruit filled power with finesse, structure and complexity with a finish that will take you into next week. What more could you ask for in a wine? Dark berries, dried currant, leather tobacco and expresso
Very new world. I disagree with others who say that this is balanced. This wine was followed over five hours and the alcohol was very present for the entirety of the drinking experience. While far from bad, this wine didn't enthrall me as much as some other tasters on this site. The flavor profile was big, which was to be expected, but age has made the fruit taste stewed and pruney with very little underlying complexity. It was just big. I feel like this was a wine that probably drank very well on initial release when the fruit was still fresh. Disappointing showing from this producer whom I have really enjoyed in the past and most recently with their stellar (big but balanced) 2004 Hickinbotham Cabernet.
