Tasted On 10/25/2009
We had this with grilled steak on 10/25/09. When first poured into the decanter, it gave off strong aromas of tobacco & cherry. After an hour it really opened up and had developed a terrifically complex bouquet of cherry, blackberry, blueberry cassis, tobacco, loam and vanilla aromas. The palate was EXTREMELY SMOOTH and balanced with sour cherry, blackberry, blueberry, dirt, tobacco and vanilla flavors. The blueberry was especially strong. I really enjoyed this...terrific wine!
