Awesome stuff! Dried herbs, ripe red fruits, soy, spice, and cigar smoke notes.

This wine exploded on the palate with big notes of cherry, toasted almonds, leather, anise, and toasted oak. With a beautiful deep ruby color and long legs, it was still big enough to stand up to a prosciutto wrapped filet set over wild and domestic musrooms. The mouthfeel was big and the tannins still chewy. I didn't want this bottle to end. It was powerful down to the last drop.
