Wonderful way to start a Friday night after a Glacial week. Ripe strawberry and dried cranberry, followed by subtle tobacco, cocolate, and leather. Very well balanced. Non-fruit characteristics were nuanced well, and the fruit showed maturity and vibrance at the same time. This wine could easily age for another 10-20 years and be amazing, but it was fantastic today, as is.
Medium(+) garnet ruby, viscous @15.1% abv. Medium aromas of cherry, cocoa, graphite, dried leaves and oak. Dry, medium(+)-high acidity, medium sweet-ripe tannin, high alcohol and full body. Medum(+) complex palate of black cherries, red berries, tobacco, bitter chocolate, and pepper flavors. Crunchy, almost light-footed texture. Very good length with balanced fnish and the ripe tannins provide that lovely bitter-sweet finishing touch. A great wine.
