Stephen Tanzer's IWCGood healthy ruby color. Sappy aromas of cherry, raspberry, smoke and licorice, plus a faint sauvage note that may simply be due to sheer concentration. Chewy, penetrating and vibrant, with the structure and thrust of the vintage. Lively, aromatic inner mouth fruit flavors complicated by smoke and roasted nuts. Finishes firmly tannic but with very strong balancing fruit.
