Rich and decadent on the nose, the wine shows off mocha, sagebrush and Asian spices on the nose. The mouthfeel is seriously good as this silky wine tends to glide through the mid-palate. There are generous flavors of milk chocolate covered cherry, anise, creme de cassis and sagebrush. This is an outstanding wine that will be best served after a two plus hour decant for the moment. Enjoy this great wine over the next fifteen years.
