The palate is huge, with fresh and dried black cherries, blueberries, espresso, unsweetened chocolate, and cloves. Tannins are powerful and smooth, mouth feel big and meaty. Drink with well-marbled ribeye to tame the big tannins and let the fruit flow. Very Highly Recommended. 95 points.
Huge, ripe black fruits lead on the palate, black currant, plums, and elderberry, with milk chocolate and espresso adding depth on the mid-palate. This requires red meat and fat - try it with lamb chops with béarnaise butter. Highly Recommended. 93 points.
With rich fruits, impressive florals, and terrific structure, this would pair perfectly with a great ribeye. Highly Recommended. 93 points.
