Uncharacteristically, semi-transparent ruby red in appearance. Earthy black cherry and slightly raisiny flavors with some nice spicy notes, but certainly not a monster in body or length. Less sweet-feeling than usual, almost tart in the mouth, though quite well-balanced. Still a tad of tannin in the finish. - WB Team 2004-03-12
