Good deep ruby. Musky cassis, black cherry and spicy bitter chocolate on the nose. Concentrated and chewy but a bit youthfully reduced, with a distinctly medicinal cast to the dark fruit and menthol flavors. Showing little in the way of easy sweetness today. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a repeating medicinal quality. More brutal today than the Howell Mountain version but with plenty of potential.Author: Stephen Tanzer
