A purple-rimmed, glossy deep scarlet wine. Oak tones preempt fruit: earth, olive, smoke; then cassis, tobacco, vanilla. Huge extract reminiscent of plums. Rather tannic, but still coming together — a sure bet for aging.
The Wine Journal
…dark ruby, has a perfumed nose and flavors of lovely black cherry, black currant, berry and bright vanilla tones. Rich, but still youthful, it has intense layered complexity and a long finish. With dense, cedary fruit and integrated tannins and a medium long, cedary finish, it looks to have a very fine future.
