This wine sees only new American oak. It boasts an opaque black/purple color in addition to knock-out aromas of melted asphalt blackberries truffles and licorice. Cherry jam notes also emerge in the flavors. Unctuously-textured incredibly ripe pure and full-bodied this wine would make even Australia's Grange look wimpish if tasted side by side. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2025. Celestial black currants intermixed with coffee licorice Asian spices and pain grille notes are more reminiscent of a blockbuster vintage of Mouton-Rothschild than what I would expect from a Shiraz/Cabernets blend.
