Opaque black core with scarlet highlights. Backward nose of pencil lead, blueberry preserves, black plum and campfire smoke. The compact palate is framed by purposeful, crisp and seamless tannins. Though only moderate, the acidity is clearly chiseled. This powerful wine is like a lean body builder with the bulk coming from the significant alcohol. Musk, sweaty saddle and fresh-picked, earth-covered mushrooms apply vivid flavor strokes. Medium finish. Drink now to 2015.
