This wine has a big nose of red raspberries with smoke, cedar, and dark ground spice notes. In the mouth, layers of red and dark red fruit dominate the palate with roasted spices, dark flowers and forest floor flavors underneath. This is a richly layered wine with complex flavors and medium weight tannins. Its multidimensional components will evolve over a decade.

Reviews:

"Asian spices, incense, plum, and black raspberry aromas set the stage for a structured (for the vintage), potentially complex, spicy, smooth-textured offering..." -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Smoky red and dark berry aromas are complicated by cola, sassafras and allspice." -Rated 90, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
