Heady, with lots of black cherry, blackberry, bramble, tobacco and grilled beef aromas and flavors. Lots of toast, but very juicy, with thick layers of fruit pumping through the finish. Love its character. Drink now through 2006. 360 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Lush and ripe, with lots of blackberry and boysenberry fruit gliding along suave mocha and spice notes. Creamy finish. Drink now through 2007. 7,380 cases made. —James Molesworth
