"Having an ultra-dark core, this wine opens with a bouquet of black plum, black cherry, graphite, and hints of leather, and eucalyptus. There is a smoky edge to this wine as well, showing accents of smoked brisket, and creosote. The palate is plush, currently displaying rich flavors of grenadine, orange rind, balck plum, leather, and wet stone. The minerality is lovely."
