89Aromas of red currants, Bing cherries, and tobacco leaf flow upward from the glass. Rich and full-bodied, the fruits turn into Black cherry and raspberry pie filling, kept grounded by tobacco leaf, vanilla, and spice box flavors. Tannins are dusty. This is a big wine married with big wood. Drink with a big steak. Recommended.
