($75) Full, bright ruby-red. Expressive aromas of dark berries, mocha, truffle, licorice, smoke and tobacco. Sweet, lush and creamy but not at all sloppy, with a truffley note complicating the berry and tobacco flavors. Broad, ripe tannins won't get in the way of drinking this rather forward wine now, but it's balanced to age.

Super big wine. Berry forward and needs to either sit longer or air before serving.
