Last bottle must have been a bit off, but it was a PNP. This bottle however was decanted about 1+ hours before drinking. That made all the difference in the world. Nice, fruit-forward, new world style. Fresh and tart red fruit. This still has quite a bit of life left in it. Drink or hold for another 2+ years.
Fresh and sappy still with wild berry aromas and flavors. Cherry, plum and lavendar scents as well with complex and rich aromas and flavors. Fleshy and supple with an extended finish. Juicy without being simplistic. Some earthiness and savory notes in addition to the juicy fruit. Nice contrasts and balance overall.
Medium to dark garnet. Extremely aromatic, almost floral or perfume on the nose. Very elegant and stylish. Subdued dried currant, earth and mushroom. Very sweet and savory and complex. Darke berry fruit on the finish.
