A very extracted, deep ruby colour, and showing a hint of garnet. Has a developing nose of dried black and red fruits, dates, and sweet oak spices. Velvety tannins, black cherry, and a bit of cracked pepper. Has a meaty sensation on the medium-heavy body. The alcohol, although high, is integrated. Great length. Apr 2011
