The nose shows raspberry and elderberry, with hints of raspberry licorice and coffee. It has a beautifully velvety mouth feel, with pillow-soft tannins. Mulberry and black cherry lead, with mocha making a clear appearance on the mid-palate. This is silky-smooth and ready to drink now. Pair with New York strip. Very Highly Recommended (96-98). DH
