Medium ruby. Nose of ripe plums, cherries and blackberries are complemented by a hint of tobacco. A balanced and complex wine with flavors of redcurrants, black cherries and cinnamon. Well-matched with barbecued meats, robust pasta entrées, baked ham, pork chops and sharp cheese.

Bright ruby-red. Pungent scents of cassis, blueberry and violet, plus a whiff of bitter chocolate. Plush, densely packed, very youthful wine with a restrained sweetness and excellent intensity and vinosity. Sexy dark chocolate and tobacco notes add interest to the dark fruit and spicy oak flavors, with harmonious balancing acidity keeping the wine fresh. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and subtle rising length. Still a bit reticent, this will be better in a year.

A pitch-black color and aromas of raisin, tobacco, damp earth and blackberry announce a very ripe wine with some overripe elements. A clampy palate with biting tannins is home to flavors of graphite, baked plum and prune. Raisiny flavors along with tobacco and chocolate notes play out on a sappy, saturated finish.

Crisp, with fresh-crushed red fruit flavors that are supported by crunchy acidity. Cranberry zest detail emerges on the finish. Drink now through 2021.
