Review

Medium-dark ruby; attractive, earthy, black cherry and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of cassis, tar, and graphite; full body; rich, fleshy, supple, cassis and dark berry fruit flavors with cedary notes and a bit coarse on the finish; medium-full to full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Approachable now though best to age for another year or two. Very highly recommended.
