Expressive nose of red fruit and baking spices. Black cherry, dark raspberry, cassis fruit is balanced by light oak and graphite/tar, with hints of nutmeg, allspice, and vanilla bean. Good wine, finish is creamy with well integrated tannins, could use a bit more acidity as the fruit seems a bit flat. Drink now and through 2017.
Cruiserweight of a wine. Not a Heavyweight but has a big enough punch to get your attention. Needs 1 hour minimum decanting and watch out for the sediment. Ripe, dense red and black fruit with raspberry and black cherries dominant. Lacks complexity but still good QPR for Oakville Tannins still present and high alcohol is noticeable (15.5%) Dry, Medium+ finish. Definitely a red meat wine.
