Round and powerful, she's a brick house. This wine features a tough exterior with a piercing streak of ripe cherry running through the middle. Boxed-in cherry and raspberry flavors grace the firm palate, and there's more than enough tannins to the starching finish. Now it's probably better with food; in a couple of years it should soften up. —M.S.
