This is a deeply extracted, rich and robust wine. It is bursting with black cherry and blackberry aromas, with hints of cocoa and coffee. On the palate the wine has an immediate presence, as the attack and mid-palate are robust. The dark berry aromas follow through with consistency onto the palate. The tannins are big, but round and well-resolved and quickly round out what is a long, lingering finish. This wine will age gracefully for 20+ years.
