#42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010
Deep blackish red. Dark brooding fruit aromas of black cherry, boysenberry with florals, truffle and tar.
The palate is silkily structured, with layered fine tannins giving a texture of silk and rose petals. Flavors of the same black fruits and florals, backed with mushroom, bark, fennel and other spices. Dense yet elegant and poised. The finish gradually unwinds revealing bright red berry and violets.
