Tasted by GrapeRover. Dark ruby, slightly brown rim. Great viscosity. Distinguished, elegant nose of ripened dark fruit like cherry (amarone), blackberry and plum. Well supporting fragrances of cedar and mushroom. Well balanced flavors of ripe dark fruit with a tinge of oriental spice and mellow oak. Firm body with a velvety structure. Pleasant long finish. Great class! Should improve even more... (89 pts.) - Tasted 2/4/2013.
