This estate-crafted red blend is immediately enticing. Tantalizing aromas stir the senses with pipe smoke, saddle leather and graphite. Following are fragrances of sweet violets, red roses, mixed berries and baking spices. Enjoy the deep garnet color of the wine, as restrained oak supports a full-bodied mouth-feel with grace and smoothness. Dried cranberry flavors, jammy wild mountain blackberries, along with dark chocolate prevail. Rich and complex, with a taut, firm structure, this beauty is sure to provide years of cellaring potential. A very collectible vintage. Save some bottles for your cellar.
