Tasting Notes:
tasted: July 15, 2008 , Anthony Mongiello
89 points "Color: deep; Nose: complex; Aromas: spicy, black berry, dried fruit; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: full-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: bold; Def needed more time in the bottle. The nose is pleasant enough with raisin, plum, and an underlying spice that would surely increase with age. The mouth is where the youth shows as the wine is up front and in your face leaving an unbalanced heat taking over the finish. The rating reflects the potential with time in the bottle."
