Medium ruby red. Above average intensity on the nose, with plum, blackcherry, smoke, pepper, and some some wood. This wine is dry with chewy/grippy tannins - comes across young - with medium acid and good weight. On the palate there is added leather and spice. With a med+ length this is pretty good. Feb 2011.
