Dry, smoky and alluring, with herb, pine, schist, licorice and vanilla aromas. This is pure, tight and clean as a whistle, with dark, smoky, sultry flavors of baked black fruits, spice and licorice. Oak comes through on the finish, which is chocolaty and long. A classy wine to drink now thru 2015.
Lively and loaded with smoky aromas of beef jerky, sandalwood and leather. Distant blackberry along with vanilla and tobacco carry the palate, while the finish is wide and smooth. Very drinkable if not a classic. Imported by Billington Imports.
