Dark ruby core. Ripe berry bouquet with dusty earth and stone. Rich bing cherry and blackberry flavors on attack, leading to tart plum and briar further on. Not overly extracted, but big fruit. More complex toasty tobacco, spicy clove and cocoa/dark chocolate flavors emerge after a couple of hours as everything softens. Full mouthfeel, nicely lifted, with a luscious tannic finish. Allow two full hours after opening (4 to 24 hours even better). Really like this youthful 20-vineyard blend, but might be best to hold 4 to 7 years.
