This full bodied, fruity to integrated wine has notes of raspberry, strawberry, vanilla, cedar and leather. It is aromatic, silky and sweet. It has an aging potential of more than 5 years and due to it being tannic, I think it will be best in 2012-13. The finish is long, once the wine has opened up for more than 30 min. My impression: BEAUTIFUL. A definite necessity for my cellar. Tasted Jan/10.
