Full-bodied, rich and a bit oaky, the wine has a lot of smoke, fruit, wood and volume. One can find round textures and a big, sweet, fruity finish along with espresso bean, thyme and cocoa. Give it at least 5 years in the cellar. 89-91 Pts

Round, lush, juicy, sweet and fresh, the ripe cherries come through loud and clear.
