2002 Gordon Brothers Tradition
A dark ruby appearance shows great concentration. Remarkable for it's complexity, the nose offers impressive aromas of cedar, pepper, spice, mint and chocolate. The smooth and velvety palate, with layers of currant, black cherry and spice flavors, is framed by nuances of toasty oak. It finishes with a well focused, fruity finish punctuated with dashes of herb and cedar. A bright, but well-integrated acidity will allow our Tradition to age beautifully.
