Tasted On 11/23/2010
14.1% ABV. Opened and poured through the Vinturi into a decanter. Followed over two and one half hours. Initial nose of rich, rich, dark black cherries and other darker tree fruits. On the palate this wine is smokey with bright black cherry and plum. Tar lines the edges throughout the palate and lingers through the finish. There are lime peel notes from the front palate through the midpalate. This wine is really fruit forward, but not overbearing, there is a brightness that keeps the wine lively. Very approachable now with a decent decant of one half hour+ or hold 1-2 years.
