Good bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines black raspberry, mocha, brown spices, licorice, flint and game. Large-scaled, rich and opulent; a wave of plush fruit washes over the palate. The very long finish combines a distinctly wild gamey quality with wonderfully refined, building tannins. From a 1994 planting, which Charles Smith characterizes as "very old for around here." Plenty of structure here to support mid-term aging.
