Burnt candle wax notes improved to truffles! Go figure! Baked cherries black and bing, with tobacco sweetness, a touch of mint and rosemary, cedar, red currant, and a little grape bottle cap candy (in a good way). Cafe de leche with toffee, licorice and smoke. Really a charmer. This one evolved in the glass, showing so many interesting angles; muscled, but finesse through to the tangy, lip smacking, loitering finish.

Fabulous wine. Very Bordeaux like not only in its blend but in nose and palate. Beautiful fruit but with a layer of earthiness to it. Great finish and could be double the price and it would still be worth it.

Ok, think I don't like American oak. But not horrible. My got the dill once Mitch pointed it out. Dry.
