Decanted nearly three hours before drinking. Magenta in color. Vanilla and oak on the nose. Medium body and short finish. Flavors of blackberries and currants began to appear four hours after opening. Also a plum and spicy aftertaste that grew stronger over time. A little more body five hours after opening, but still short finish. Much better six hours after opening. Still somewhat closed and too young to drink, although it does have potential.
Colour: Garnet, transparent red Nose: Red currant, raspberry, red cherry alongside crushed rocks, a bit of mint, pepper and licorice. Palate: Silky mouthfeel, integrated tannins, spicy. Medium-bodied with just a hint of a nice bitterness on the back end. Potential to cellar some more years.
Lighter red, 85% Grenace 15% Cinsault. Peppery/spicy, red currant, jammy on the nose, medium bodied, demi-complex. Softening with aeration. Like a father in law trying to intimidate you…a little stern upon opening, softening to affability
