Tasted On 02/04/2012
I thought this might be too young. It probably was but it was delicious. Purple/ruby in color. The nose is big with cherries, cassis and some earthiness. Also some brown tobacco and some vanilla. Tons of fruit, big and open on the palate. Juicy, rich texture. Easy to drink as it tastes delicious. There is some complexity here, probably due to the blend, but I think it will age out just fine. Still, quite delicious now and much more accessible than I thought it would be.
