If slightly restrained with respect to fruit in the nose and showing touches of mushroom and a bit of forest-floor spice atop its subdued sense of cherries, this one comes up big on fruit on the palate with a healthy sense of ripeness and plenty of oak to its deep and continuous flavors. There is again a light touch of the soil lurking back of its fruit, and the wine is as complex in taste as it is genuinely rich.
Well-structured, smooth and complex, with a rich, concentrated core of vibrant black cherry and blackberry fruit that gains amplitude on the finish, with hints of sage, spice and nutmeg adding flavor dimensions.
A big, fruity wine, bursting with chocolate fudge, black cherry and vanilla flavors, and made vibrant with keen acidity. Feels plush and warming in the mouth, and could develop for a few more years.
