($55) Bright ruby-red. Wild aromas of blackberry, black cherry, espresso, leather, raw meat, tobacco and mint. Juicy, sweet and plump, with intense but rather rustic flavors. Finishes with lingering sweet fruit and surprisingly ripe tannins. Not squeaky-clean but long on personality.

Dark black cherry colored wine with lots of moderately pigmented legs. Surprisingly accessible aromas of leafy cherry, sage, mint, dark chocolate, blackberry, and light oak shadings. Substantial fruit manages to peak out from a heavy overlay of tannin in the mouth. Heavy tannins with lots of acidity, (perhaps too much), frame the finish. Tannins are persistent but not harsh. This wine has the structure to repay extended aging and enough fruit to survive a long sleep. This wine is all about potential at present.
