A nice red, good tannins and bright dark cherry and black currant throughout. Sadly, there are $20.00 bottles that are better than this $70.00 bottle. This does not live up to the price.

(**) Well balanced wine. Black plum, buttered toast and violet. Needed about 30 minutes to air out the alcohol, then perfect.

Had the 2011 with pizza tonight. Loved the strong notes of plum/prune. The longer it airs, the better it gets.
