- Opaque, sexy ruby in color. Alluring aromas of currants, violet, stone, cream de casis, burnt wood, hint of herbs, soft and soothing. Wow, on the palate, amazing, superb balance of fruit and tannins, filled with concentrated ripe, powerful, plum juice, berries, minerals, leather and coffee. Round, super fine tannins, long lingering finish of burnt leather, smoke and dried berries. Really smooth,
- This is a ridiculous Bordeaux!!!! Thanks John Kober for the birthday wine.
