Rich tobacco leaf and dust pair with blue fruit on the nose. Blue fruits, elderberry and blueberry, lead the attack as well, joined by tobacco on the mid-palate. This has terrific structure, with firm tannins and acids to match. This has great cellar potential, but if you can’t wait, pair it with a well-marbled strip or ribeye. Very Highly Recommended (95-97). DH.

He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
