Rich aromas of dark chocolate and cigar give way to layered flavors of currant, plum and coffee. The wine has a firm mid-palate and round, soft tannins. Like the structure of a deep bass with the timelessness of a good melody.
This wine has a very rich, concentrated entry. Because of the warmth late in the growing season there is a juiciness that explodes with flavor. Very developed mid-palate with soft tannins give the wine a sort of oval shape in the mouth. The finish is packed with flavors of berry and nutmeg.
