Review by Stephen Tanzer
(A 60/40 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon). Good deep, bright ruby-red. Highly aromatic nose combines mulberry, boysenberry, tobacco and flowers. Intensely flavored and sweet, with a scented quality to the fruit-driven flavors of ripe plum, mulberry and flowers. For all its breadth and sweetness this also boasts excellent tannic structure and grip. Musky aromas of currant, tobacco, licorice, minerals, mocha and coffee. Creamy-smooth and broad, with captivating flavors of currant and graphite.
