Blackberry, plums, and boysenberry explode on the palate, carried along by rich mocha, hints of herbs, and velvety tannins. Drink with dry-aged Strip with shallot butter. Very Highly Recommended. 95 points.
Dark chocolate, espresso, and finally, black pepper, all make appearances on an ever-evolving palate of marvelous complexity. This wine bats far out of its price league, so splurge with the money you save and drink it with a great steak. High Recommended. 94 points.
