Full, beefy and leathery smelling, with muscular black fruit aromas resting below the surface. Integrated and layered on the palate, with earthy flavors of roasted berry and leather. Turns tight and tough on the finish, where tannic bite offsets oaky chocolate and vanilla notes. Drink now through 2013.
