    August 27, 2008 - Wow. Had alone and then with a spicy tofu stir fry. Still a bit alcoholic on the nose just out of the bottle, but that settles in about 10 minutes. Overwhelming dark cherry on the nose, along with plum and a hint of currants. On the tongue it's still big cherry and plum, but the spice is much more present. Big and bold, and yet still like syrup. Holds up to heavy spiced food without a flinch. Surprisingly long finish that continues the spice, almost like a fruity Syrah. I'm sure this is not to everyone's liking, but for those who like them over the top and full of fruit and spice, this is a big winner. Glad to have more in the cellar...
