Tasting notes from Mia Klein:
Aromatically we find raspberry, strawberry, plum, ripe sweet cherry, vanilla bean, cognac (a la cherries jubilee); bittersweet chocolate, cocoa, brown sugar (a la great brownies); hints of tobacco, exotic sandalwood, and white pepper. The wine has very good impact in the mouth with all of the aromatics showing nice intensity. Length of flavor is excellent and the texture is rich with just enough backbone to lend structure. This is a very sophisticated wine with many levels. It is approachable young, but should continue to develop over the next several years.
This wine can be enjoyed now or will continue to evolve in the cellar.
