Big & Bold
Dark Red/Purple color. Nose is cassis, sweet black fruits, tobacco, and I noticed a little cedar. We drank this wine over about 2 hours. Nice Black fruits and firm tannins on the palate with maybe a hint of spice to it. Wine softened a bit by the 2nd hour. I'll hold my other 2 bottles for a while....has the potential to get better. This is a big wine that clearly needs time to evolve.
