Slightly cloudy, hazy deep purple. Little rim variation. Heavy staining and slow legs. Intense nose of alcohol before stewed black and blue fruit, menthol, and faint white flowers. On the palate, blackberry jam, small white flowers, ash. High tannins and alcohol. Medium acidity. Nice and filling. What a wine to drink the first night after a dentist appointment.

2008 vintage. Still young and drinking well. Delightful mouthfeel and lots of structure.

It might have been in a valley year at this point but I was not impressed.

Too young and alcohol forward that I couldn't pick up any of its characteristics
