Good full, deep red. An explosion of black plum, tar, spices and melted licorice on the nose, with subtle nuances of meat and tobacco. Big, sweet and round, with harmonious acidity energizing the cherry and spice flavors. A rich, even massive fruit bomb in the context of these 2008s but with terrific definition too. Finishes with strong, dusty tannins and a hint of austerity that suggests this wine will age slowly and gracefully.
