Purple in color and ultra rich, with aromas of shoe polish, crusty oak and dark fruit. This single-vineyard specimen is extremely bold but sort of generic. It's creamy and grabby in the mouth, with mocha and lactic notes on the finish. Bottom line: there's a lot of oak on top of standard fruit. Positive but hardly blows you away.
