Anyone fond of great red wine should swoon over this lovely thoroughbred that's just beginning to enter its prime. The nose offers hard hickory, pure red fruit, a touch of leather and herbs, and much more. Vital and serious in the mouth, with pulsing raspberry and plum flavors. Strapped on the finish, with tannic bite but also sweet flavors of mocha and vanilla. Drink now through 2013.
