What a phenomenal wine. Nice slightly dry- more smokey. Berries, tobacco, anise and bacon. Just wonderful.
If you can get your hands on this wine, you will find that it pleases many palettes. One of my favorite wines for entertaining a diverse group.
this wine is just so rich and delicious, big lushious berry, dark fruit with some spice, coffee, toffee, asian spice. do decant, it makes a big difference. the label is also a work of art, inspired from an original etching given to David Phinney by his mother and father (Orin and Swift).
