Medium red-ruby. Exotic aromas of dark cherry, bitter chocolate, mocha, fruitcake, graphite and licorice. Fat, creamy and sweet, with lovely breadth and sexy earth tones to the dark cherry fruit. Fuller than the Proprietary Red and basic Napa cabernet bottlings and longer on the aftertaste. Here the building tannins are broader and sweeter. Approachable now but with the spine to age.
