Very enjoyable and right up there in quality with some high end Napa Valley heavy hitters.
This is a large wine but it does have balance and elegance. A bit of heat is present but so is boysenberry compote, moist earth, mocha, and plenty of sweet vanilla oak on the long finish. Not your every night wine but that's not what this wine is. 94 pts.
I've had a few vintages of this wine and everyone has been very good to outstanding.
