"A ripe, spicy and relatively elegant aromatic profile presents a fruit array that is primarily red-fruit based. The rich and full-bodied flavors possess ample volume and the tannins are really quite fine but dense and as such, the persistent and solidly well-balanced finish is firm and mildly austere. This will not be an early drinker. " (Jan 2010)

"A minty accent graces black cherry and earth flavors in this slightly chunky red, which is a bit rigid now, but starts out silky, so let it settle down and absorb the tannins. Fine length. Best from 2013 through 2024." (Jun 2011)
