Bright fruit with tobacco &licorice on the nose, full bodied, with a warm spice palate and a long lingering finish.
Wine Enthusiast"Concentrated and ripe, yet still muscular and rigid, this Bordeaux-style blend was made to age. On the palate, touches of earth, tobacco and balsamic vinegar lend a savory tone to lip-smacking black cherries and plums. Dense, deep tannins mark the finish, but should yield and meld with time. Hold till at least 2018. It should continue to reward cellaring for another decade." - Anna Lee C. Iljima, Dec 2015
