Dan reviewed this wine:
Toasted hazelnut leaps from the glass before you even get close. Smoky cassis, licorice, and prune emerge upon closer inspection. New leather, black olive, and earth join in on a nose that will keep on giving if you devote the time. Jammed berries, dried prune and fig with some olive and forest floor dominate the palate in this bold, brooding wine. Big, chewy tannins and medium acidity suggest this could age a few more years yet. Food with fat content is necessary if drinking this wine now. Think thick-cut, medium rare striploin steak with a roasted shallot cream sauce and crumbled blue cheese.
