Complex spice-accented aromas of black and blue fruit preserves vanilla mocha and pipe tobacco with a smoky nuance building with air. Lush palate-staining blackberry and blueberry flavors show impressive depth and surprising energy with gentle acidity providing lift. Closes sweet and very long with velvety tannins and a lingering vanilla note.

Dark ruby core with a medium brick rim. Heady notes of macerated blackberry roasted coffee and berry cola nut on the nose. The entry drips with glycerol and a mélange of ripe raspberry currant and dried cranberry flavors. Mocha tobacco and espresso are prominent on the mid-palate along with hints of vanilla and cedar while the finish's tremendous staying power reflects cabernet sauvignon's influence. The wood and fruit tannins are chunky but should integrate well after another 6-12 months in bottle. Those who favor primary fruit versus subtlety should pop the cork now for instant gratification. But equally laying this effort down for 4 to 7 years would pose no problem. A solid effort from the iconic Paso Robles producer.
