Majorly extracted, big wine. All black fruit, vanilla, dried herbs and spice. Soft, easy tannins make it drinkable on its own (For you, Cab lovers!). Needs game meats (Herb & pepper venison with black fruit reduction) to pair with. Or skirt steak. Or a good cigar. A real glass/teeth stainer.

Now this is a great wine. Dark in color, almost black with a purple rim.
Magnificent nose with blueberries, figs, plums, and herbs.
Sweet candies on the palate with blueberries, cranberry, dried figs, raisins, peppercorn.
Big, bold and beautiful with gorgeous legs.
Smooth and sexy long finish with bold tannins and ripen fruits.
Great right out of the bottle. After 2 hours in the decanter, chewy tannins on the finish. This is not my first, and definitely not my last. Very consistent from year to year.
Petit petite Ft. My son.

Up to this point I've been exclusively a white wine drinker, but this is the wine that changed all that. Light on the tannins, heavy on the jam. A new favorite and gateway to other reds.

Very dark, not much fruit, leather, smoke, too oaked for my palate.

Highly extracted wine. Moderate alcohol, medium body. Inky, attractive color. Predominant blackberry notes. Balanced oak, with silky tannins becoming slightly gripping as the taste progesses.

De-freaking-licious. Ripe fruits, spice, and raw meat on the nose. The palate is round, silky and full-bodied with tobacco, cloves, oak, vanilla, and figs, dates and other black fruits. Finish is semi hot with dark chocolate. Tannins gain structure after an hour or so out of the bottle. Needs a pinch of acid for more balance, but an overall yummy blend.
