Ripe blackberry aromas are accented by herbal notes, tomato, cedar and tobacco. The palate is full and walled in by big tannins, while the flavor profile is ripe, masculine and centered on black fruit, mocha and coffee. Toasty and oaky late, with tobacco on the finish. A serious wine with obvious qualities.
