Review

Medium-dark ruby; attractive, cedary, black cherry and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of orange zest, licorice, dried herbs, and smoked meat; full body; tightly focused, textured, cedary, blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors that are well balanced and firmly structured; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Developed with airing in the glass to show good depth and some complexity, and should reward another five more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.
