Clearly outstanding. Lots of tobacco, cherry and berry aromas. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long finish. Seductive.
...dense,thick-looking purple color,as well as a closed bouquet. With coaxing,notes of damp earth,spicy new oak, truffles,blackberry and plum fruit emerge. Dense, with jagged tannin,considerable power,and a roasted, chocolatey character...
Rich, malty, tarry; full, rich, spicy. Very tannic.
