A big rich dense wine without the alcohol invasion. Deep red with purple hues and a nose of blackberry, licorice and some Asian spice. The palate is full of rich, sweet fruit, firm ripe chalky tannins that persist on the palate carrying the fruit along for the ride. A Golden Grove Estate Classic with pedigree beyond many seen in this country. Drink now for firmness or tuck away in a dark corner for 15years.
