This is a big, bold wine. The color is very dark red with deep purple undertones. The aromas are expressive, suggesting cranberry, plum, pepper, toasted oak and hints of vanilla and mocha. On the palate the wine is full bodied with a bold attack and a full midpalate leading into a long finish. The texture of the wine is rich. It is well rounded, but with a very nice balance of acid and tannin which provides a bold framework for the wine to age within.
