Silky tannins and fresh acidity balance the juicy flavors. Drink through 2018. — K.O. (8/1/2015)

Aromas of plum, dark berry, iris, tobacco and a whiff of menthol emerge in the glass. The palate is a bit more subdued than the nose, offering dried black cherry, mint, dark spice and a hint of coffee. Soft, smooth tannins give it polish and an easy-drinking vibe. — K.O. (9/1/2015)
