Issue: Issue 156
(15.1% alcohol; includes 2% petit verdot): Bright, deep red. Aromatic, rather claret-like nose combines currant, tobacco, black licorice and minerals; more red fruit than black. Much less forthcoming on the palate than the merlot, showing strong soil tones and minerality to the cherry and cedar flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty, palate-saturating tannins. A serious, ageworthy wine with attractive floral lift.

This wine has obviously mellowed since WS reviewed it. It is very well balanced with good depth. Lots of blackberries, and a hint of graphite. Good finish.

Nose had a fig/prune quality to it that kind of ruined it for me ... disappointed in this one.

Enjoyed. Big and robust. Not much tannins. Smooth finish. Liked it for a cab.
