Ripe black cherry and plum aromas mingle with toasty oak and a hint of leather.
Flavor: In the mouth, ripe black cherry, plum and currant flavors are beautifully in balance with sweet oak carrying through to a long finish. Tannins are supple and round.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Quite reliant on jazzy oak, but it's also quite rich and concentrated, with appealing currant, black cherry, anise, mineral and leathery notes, finishing with pretty coffee ground notes. Drink now through 2009. 88,858 cases made. –JL
