It's a richer, more powerful wine than the regular bottling, weighing in at 16% alcohol, yet it never seems hot, just big, plush and velvety. Subtle notes of cocoa and pencil shavings frame cherry and spice flavors in this seamless blend of fruit and oak. Sexy stuff! - JC

It's deep, full-bodied, has silky tannins, and a great finish.

Whispers of earth, forest floor and anise suggest it will gain complexity with age but ripe, persistent tannins make it approachable now as well. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

Powerful, oak-accented cherry and dark berry scents are complemented by subtle floral and garrigue nuances. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering plush cherry-vanilla, blueberry and cola flavors that show very good depth. Lingers with strong tenacity on the youthfully tannic finish, leaving behind repeating vanilla and blue fruit notes. There's a good whack of oak here, but there also seems to be adequate fruit to handle it. -- Josh Raynolds
