Slightly chewy, dry and tart with notes of cherry, dark chocolate, terra cotta and game.
Bright dark red. Fresh but deep aromas of black cherry, smoked meat, coffee, and old leather. Concentrated, plush and sweet, with rich and round flavors of blackberry and smoked meat. Finishes with big, ripe tannins and lingering notes of fresh black cherry and smoky licorice. Gorgeous wine.
A frankly ridiculous value...gorgeous. Firm tannins frame a core of expressive red cherries, tobacco, wild herbs and flowers. The 2008 impresses for its depth and sheer richness.It is a magnificent wine.
