($250) Bright ruby-red. Redcurrant, cherry, rose petal and graphite aromas lifted by spicy oak. Pure and perfumed in the mouth, with real focus to the juicy flavors. But there's also a very strong oak spice component, and the wood seems to harden the wine on the back end. Finishes with slightly drying tannins and a suggestion of menthol.

Light ruby red in color. An amazing bouquet of minerals, cherry, light spices, licorice with a flowery scent to it. On the palate it developed into a powerful but elegant blend. It had great fruit, some acidity, and lots of power. The finish did not seem to end.
