This inky moster of a wine is finally starting to show. Still opaque purple,and instead of the usual red fruit coming thru on the nose, it's black...Big dose of sweet oak on the nose, a lot of cinnamon, clove and white pepper. Big entry, a solid center and a long finish that is shut down by a massive tannin attact. This fruit must be the same that Beringer uses in their Howell Mtn bottling. Dern bottle thinks it's a cab.
