Cassis, blackberry and black cherry notes. Some fine tannins remain, could have been aged for 1-2 years, but definitely enjoyable now. Dry, medium-bodied. Very good! Tasted March/2011.

An upfront, developing nose of blackberry, black cherry, and cocoa. The palate weight is on a heavier side with good balance of fruit, dark chocolate, and tannins that are integrating. A decent length. Ready for enjoyment now, but could improve with a year or two of aging. (Jan 26, 2011)
