Tasted On 12/23/2009
Deep , rich purplish ruby colored core with an ever so slight ruby/pink halo developing. Nose of garrigue , cracked black pepper , BBQ smoke with a hint of raspberry in the background. This is in transition from its lush fruit flavors showing upon release IMO. Black cherries and scorched earth flavors peek through a tannic cloak on first impression. Mid palate showed tart crushed cranberry flavors with mineral and dark chocolate. Finish is very long and profound with raspberry flavors lingering.
