Not really into this style anymore. A little overripe and extracted, but a good enough match for ribeyes.

Tasted the 08, 10. 11, and 14 at the estate. 08 and 10 were rockin’ and the 11 and 14 hold tremendous promise. Outstanding tasting!

Deep ruby coloration. On the nose, cherry, currants, anise, vanilla and caramel. On the palate, a full bodied, smooth/velvety mouthfeel with robust cherry, anise, toasted oak and a long finish. Tannins have softened just a bit after ten years. Drinking very nicely.
