Tasting notes: CMS by Hedges Cellars
nose: black fruits, leather, tiny hints of meat at first & a slightly minty-herbaceousness.
palate: Rich, harmonious, black currants, blackberries. Nicely balanced acidity leading into some tasty supple tannins. It had a little bit of a rustic, funky quality in the background hiding with some pepper & smoke. The vanilla laden finish is long & sweet.
This would make excellent steak night wine. Just be sure & get two bottles.
