The dark chewy berry fruit filled out with chocolate earth and highly glossed with oak. Well supported by firm tannins, it's a red that's approachable now, but could benefit from another ten to 15 years in the cellar.

Solidly built, with an ample core of boysenberry, blackberry and braised fig fruit flavors laced with dark licorice. The long, grippy finish lets crème de cassis and plum sauce notes sail on. Rather fruit-centric now, but has the stuffing to develop further.
