Creamy-textured, with smoky mocha-laced oak wrapped around a supple core of raspberry, blueberry and blackberry flavors, finishing with lots of depth, richness and concentration. Drink now through 2011.
Full bodied and fleshy, this is a richer, more powerful wine than the Bien Nacido, with light tannin on the finish. It tastes of plum, cherry, blueberry, toast, and tobacco.
