...a sexy in your face, dark ruby/garnet-colored offering with a big, sweet perfume of soy, nori, ripe black cherry fruit, and smoky oak. Rich, full, fat, opulent, and decadent, it is meant to be drunk now and over the next 8-1o years.’
Aromas of currant, licorice and menthol, plus a whiff of prune. Intensely flavored and quite sweet, but firm acids give the wine terrific sappy vinosity. Finishes with tongue-dusting but rather fine tannins.
