Some heat on the nose. Big, pure, dark fruit. Initially not yielding much else, but after 15-20 min in the glass came into balance and showed a nice finish. I've liked this wine more in the past - drink them young?
Smoky nose. Very tight - not yielding much upon opening but got better and better. Would probably have benefitted from decanting. Nicely balanced, pure fruit breaks throut the tannins. This may be great with more bottle age.
Medium bodied, dark red. Complex nose. Well integrated oak and the fruit is beginning to show some secondary characteristics. A bit thin on the finish. Others said this bottle wasn't as good as this wine usually is.
Phenomenal nose - I could sit and sniff this wine all night. Beautiful fruit in great balance, but the palate and finish (while very good) could not quite match the nose. Impressive effort - and this wine is open for business.
