Moist soil, cola and molasses aromas all indicate depth, oak and ripeness, while the palate is full, fairly juicy and saturated with serious black fruit flavors. Additional prune and chocolate notes come on toward the finish, cementing this wine's meaty, somewhat modern personality. It gets better with airing and will not suffer from a few years in the cellar.
