This was a real treat that the Sommelier brought out the other night at a Earshot Jazz Festival show at the Triple Door. Ruby color. On the nose, developed, medium+ intensity, sour cherry fruit, loaded with spices, bark, cedar, anise, layered, with moderate oak, and a distinct chalky earth component. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, leather, cherry, fig, tea, cocoa, medium tannin, medium+ acidity, with beautiful balance, and a long spice filled finish. This wine kicked serious butt.
