Monday, January 20, 2014 - Highly similar experience to my note on 11/27. Vinturi to decanter and vigorous swirling to blast some air into it. A reminiscent alluring bouquet of red berries, currants, herbs, flowers, and earthy goodness. On the palate there are some juicy sour cherries and tart red plum (including plum skin) along with generous grilled herbs, tobacco and earth. There is firmness up front with teeth-hugging tannins, and the acidity is medium-high. Medium finish is quite dry with earth and herbs. We drank this solo and I found myself craving food and wishing this had more time under its belt. Need to set a couple aside for 2015.
