Dark ruby in colour with medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: I concur with the LCBO notes but in addition there's cedar, coffee beans, mint, cassis, anise, pencil savings, leather, turmeric & sage. The taste is surprisingly smooth considering that this wine has medium+ tannins & acidity. The wine is also full body with a long length, and the alcohol is well managed.
Interesting Thing: The notes are more old world style than the new world fruit forward style.
Drink now or cellar for another 5 years. Drink on it's own or with a grilled T-Bone steak.
