Dark fruits on the nose and palate. Ripe plum, black cherry, blueberry, blackberry. Allspice, black pepper and cinnamon on the mid-palate segway into some heat, moderate oak and medium tannins on the spicy finish. Drank over 3 days (Vacu-vin'd between servings) and it held up nicely. Not in a hurry to finish my other 3 bottles but don't think it's getting any better, either. Starting to throw some sediment so decanting or filtering is recommended.
Nice easy drinker, not as bold as others have noted. Perhaps it is fading as another reviewer mentioned. The palate had dark fruit, perhaps cherry and fig, some chocolate and spices, and finished smoothly without any overbearing heat or tartness. Rather enjoyable wine.
