Deep red in color with a faint purple hue. Fresh black cherry and blueberries are evident on the nose, with nuances of smoke, vanillin, mocha and chocolate. The youthful palate has a tight structure with good natural acidity. Still, even at this young age the palate is quite fleshy, with a diverse flavor profile of berries, black olives, spice and smokey oak. The young tannins are dry, but will soften with age and become more opulent over time.
"Smooth and polished, with a roundness to the ripe plum and spice flavors, finishing with a hint of chalkiness. This has depth and finishes with power on an open frame. Drink now through 2015. 800 cases imported."
"Medium red-purple; a pleasant medium-bodied red, the black cherry and plum fruit with fine, ripe tannins and soft, mocha oak. No need to cellar, just enjoy."
