Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - Very different experience to the first bottle which I had last year, but overall rating is consistent.
Black as night purple.
Huge amounts of blue fruit on the nose, very fresh ripe tannins.
Palate consistent, with cool blueberry and warm umami. The oak is more noticeable tonight than it was last year, but not far enough out of line to be a problem, and the balance was restored after an hour of air.
This is a fantastically drinkable wine already, even though it needs a few more years.
I can hardly wait ...
