This was definitely a quality bottle of wine with good complexities, here are my tasting notes:
Nose: Flakes of cocoa, hints of tobacco, cassis, vanilla, and also little hints of Beef Jerky.
On the Palate: Cassis and Black-cherries on initial attack. Tobacco on a seemless transition from front to mid-palate. Some smokiness on transition from mid palate to finish. The finish could be longer and fuller, but good round tannins.
