Sweet rich aromas of prune and dried cherry mingle with smoke, mushroom, tobacco, dried herbs, cocoa... I could go on. There is a lot going on in this glass of wine. Delicate tannins greet the palate and a mocha, spicy finish lingers. You could have a rich lamb stew with this wine, but why ruin it with food.

Deep dark ruby in the glass with an almost black opaqueness. After decanting lots of aromas emerge: black cherry, prune, smoke, pipe tobacco, dried thyme, licorice. At over 5 yrs old, this wine is still young with big grippy tannin, rich fruit extract and balancing acidity. Full bodied with a long finish this wine will satisfy the Cali Cab crowd as well as the Amarone lovers. Drink until 2018 or decant tonite with roast lamb or dark chocolate. Tasted Apr '13
