Ripe almost to the point of overdone, but then it draws itself back. The nose is one part baked and one part ripe cassis and blackberry. And the palate is more or less the same thing: cassis, berry, savory roasted flavors and chocolate are all present and accounted for. Finishes with a splash of BBQ and brandied cherry. A big, broad blend of Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot and Malbec. Drink now through 2010.
