Aromas of black cherry and plum. On the palate the wine shows similar fruit flavors with hints of smoke and earth with ripe tannins and a long, velvety finish.
Sweet smoke aromas of oak and mesquite coat the dark, jammy red-fruit core on the nose of this reserve bottling. There's a lot of wood and smoke on the palate as well, which would go well with oak-roasted steaks or any barbecued dish.
