International Wine Cellar | 90(+?)
($65) Full medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of crushed dark berries and bitter chocolate. A step up in sweetness and texture from the Laughing Magpie. Very concentrated wine with fresh acidity. Also quite young and built to age.

Much more composed, but certainly extravagantly extracted, expressing scents of eucalyptus (picked up on astutely by our attractive and perceptive waitress?who obviously has a heartbreaker of a palate!), dill, blueberries, black currant and spice box. Sporting suave, tamed tannins and praiseworthy persistence, wrapped up in a finely fashioned package. A bit of a sweetie, but certainly done w/ balance in mind
