Brilliant ruby color, with russet tones. Mature and elegant, its aromatic richness is changing and subtle, becoming more apparent as the wine breathes. Notes of toast and coconut followed by tertiary aromas (leather, wet earth), and red fruit and dried fruit. Round, silky tannins, persistent and complex aftertaste. Ideal accompaniment for roast suckling lamb, game, or red meat.

Limpid ruby. Oak-tinged raspberry, cherry preserve and coconut scents, along with emerging tobacco and cola flourishes. Seamless and appealingly sweet, offering plush cherry, red currant and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. A smoky quality appears on the sweet, clinging finish, which features dusty tannins and lingering chewing tobacco and mocha qualities. Raised in new and used French and American oak barrels for two years.

On first impression, this smells like a pot of freshly brewed coffee, which is fine at breakfast but not at dinner. Hard tannins are dry as bones and dust, while this tastes of black fruits, blackened spice and black coffee. Toasty oak can be a nice addition to a fine wine, but here it's overwhelming.
