Wine Tasting Notes The consulting winemaker is Paul Hobbs. With dark ruby red colors, saturated to the rim, the aromas are dominated by bright black cherry, cola berry, and toasty oak. Other nuances include tobacco, earthiness, and rose water. The entry is big, lush, round, with medium to full body. The evolution is concentrated with impeccable balance and showing excellent middle palate. The finish is long with mouth coating tannins.
