The tar component is up front, with cherry, licorice, leather and spice notes underneath. Firm, dense tannins uphold the flavors, leaving a mouthcoating impression on the finish. Fine length. Best from 2021 through 2033. 5,000 cases made.
Aromas suggesting cellar floor, camphor and paraffin lead the nose of this wine. The camphor note follows through to the lean palate, along with red berry, ground clove and powdered sage flavors. Bracing tannins leave an astringent, drying finish.
