Purple in color. The nose is heavily oaked. Also plenty of cassis and some pencil lead. On the palate, this is more integrated. Black raspberries, underlying graphite. Thick tannins. Some depth. Good finish. This is a rich, huge wine. It will take some very hearty food to stand up to it, but it is delicious on its own. Those who love Napa fruit bombs will indeed enjoy this a lot. It retails for around $100.
