"Bright, deep ruby-red. Sexy, musky aromas of coffee, leather, game and fresh herbs, all lifted by an incense character; reminded me of syrah. Then juicy and light on its feet, with lovely flavor intensity and inner-palate vibrancy. Offers a restrained sweetness and a subtlety of flavor rare for ripe red wine in California. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and excellent grip. Still a baby."
