With a few years in the bottle this wine is showing classic Russian River Valley characteristics of cola, ripe cherry and mushroom. There is a touch of vanilla and earthy aromatics of dried leaves and summer hay. The palate is lush and full but also refreshing. The lush blackberry and sarsaparilla flavors are matched with a nice tannin grip that leads from the full palate to a long finish with dried fruit and earthy aromatics evolving during the long finish.
