Intoxicating aroma. Blackberry, Asian spice and a generous mouthful of pepper follow onto the palate. The finish is long, heat-filled and full of pepper. Strong tannins, yet in proportion and not overpowering. This is well balanced -- massive, yet delicate at the same time. One of the lower-priced wines from Turley, and still nothing short of spectacular.

For nights when your Wife pulls the car in the garage, not all the way though, then hits the automatic door button and walks away. D'oh!

Silky but dense and full of peppery dark fruits.
