Blackberries, blackcurrant, earth and charred french oak. A medium bodied wine that is impeccably well balanced with vibrant acidity. The focus and layers of fruit and texture in the mid palate are impressive. Long complex and elegant finish that stays with you for over a minute. A beautiful wine.
Intoxicating nose of dark fruit and french oak. Tastes of blackberries, raspberries, black cherries, earth, leather and pencil lead. Medium bodied with excellent balance and freshness. Extremely complex in the mid palate. Poweful finish that goes on and on. This wine has a glorious life ahead of it.

Midnight black in color. Tastes of blackberries and charred french oak. Rich and extracted. Full bodied with bright acidity. Powerful monolithic finish. Not giving up much at the point. Closed for business. Try again in a decade.
Blackberries, leather and earth. Rich and a touch over extracted to a point where it tastes a bit reduced. Powerful finish. Very young and closed. Quite tiring to drink. Could use a bit more acidity to freshen everything up and make it more lively on the palate. The last few times I've had this it showed much better. Off bottle perhaps. 14.9% alcohol.
