Dark ruby in colour with medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: Cedar, mesquite, blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate, leather, pencil shavings, turmeric, plum, black & red peppers on the nose. Medium+ tannins, good acidity, long length & full body. Surprisingly the high alcohol is well integrated.
Negatives: A little austere.
Interesting Point: Use a Shiraz style glassware as I found other glassware accentuated the austerity. After an hour the wine had more Cab notes.
Tasted: 7 Dec 11
Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 9/10, Total: 18/20
Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4
