($190) Deep red-ruby. Intriguing aromas of botanical herbs, dried flowers, mint and shiso leaf, with some intrusive nutty oak; this reminded me of a old-style Italian red.Then suave in texture, with good richness but also a firm edge to the flavors of cassis, kirsch and nutty oak.Falls down a bit on the finish, where the dusty tannins turn a bit dry. Lingering notes of licorice and dark chocolate. This seemed fresher and fuller in barrel last winter.Author: Stephen Tanzer
