The color is a deep, dark purple. The aroma is powerful, but elegant with notes of blueberry, wild cherry, licorice and cedar. It's rich and concentrated, and will be fun to watch develop over the next 10-20 years.
"Demonstrates the richness, subtlety and finesse achievable in 2009, with tiers of dried berry, loamy earth, cedar, tobacco and dried herb flavors, ending with rich, dry tannins. Best from 2013 through 2023."
