2011v. Deep violet with a little transparency. On the nose, there's some semiripe black fruit (plums, black cherry), a little black pepper, some baking spice, and mint. On the palette, the decently ripe fruit is balanced by a nice hot of black pepper and a hint of green bell pepper pyrazines. A silky body with tannins that coat your mouth and melt slowly. The finish is mostly wood, like popscicle sticks. A very easy drinking and elegant wine that has really melded together with age. 57% merlot, 40% cab sav, 3% cab franc.
