Opaque crimson. On the nose; lavender, coffee, toast, pine, sourness, gravel, licorice, smoke, dark fruit. Same on the palate as my last tasting note. Nice full fruit plum merlot mouthful with nice acidity at the start; mineral, dusty mid palate, long finish but feels disjointed, bitter and the fruit fades/disintegrates fast.
My daughter (9): nose = lemon, orange peel, rushing fresh water river, wet stones, cherries, ivy, spice drawer, sour cherries, smell of fresh earth after picking weeds My 2nd daughter (6): nose = like every other red wine you drink Daddy; rotten apples, composte
Me (45) Nose = sour cherries, spice, rhubarb, wet stones Palate = very bright ( acidic?), muted fruit but after an 1hr in the glass more noticeable, long finish. This wine has some integration to do I think. Overall not bad. Needs more time perhaps.
