"Bright, smooth, and rich ruby color with captivating aromas of black currant, red cherry, and spice are lifted out of the glass. The wine is inviting with a supple mouth-feel and notes of cassis, dark chocolate and ripe berries. The layers of complexity continue to develop throughout a silky finish. The 2011 is ready to drink upon release, but will continue to age gracefully and develop over five to six years." -Winery [+]
