A rich red with ripe flavors of linzer torte plum pudding and fig paste flavors by layers of mesquite olive paste and grilled herbs. Grippy tannins add weight to the long vibrant finish. Drink now through 2013. -JM

Blackberry redcurrant licorice violet and pepper on the nose plus a whiff of game. Creamy concentrated and sweet with a seamless texture to the high-toned blackberry and saline flavors. Offers a thickness of texture and a well-judged sugar/acid balance. Finishes quite long with very suave tannins.
