Almost two years since my last bottle. Heady nose of red fruit and dried herbs, which transitions to the palate with dark cherry fruit and dried spice. This is lean and dry in the mouth. Some fruit sweetness emerges after a few hours. No degradation over night, now showing dark cherry, a bit of wild strawberry and pomegranate, with a touch of smoke. This is balanced, no longer primary, but not especially developed. A bit leaner and dryer than I would like. Needs more time to flesh out. In New City.
Almost one year since my last bottle. This was disappointing on the first night, because it was murky and only after three hours did some red fruit come out. The next night, with Oliver, much better. The cherry fruit is more apparent, although the palate seems somewhat soft and still somewhat murky, with some brown spices. Good, not great.
Dark fruits on the palate, with ever-so-slight touches of mocha. The tannin seems burried in the fruit. The mouthfeel is very silky and the wine comes across as elegant. This also comes across as primary on the palate, with little complexity or nuance, and yet the structure is rather soft and giving. My suspicion is that structure is indeed here, to allow for further development, it's just not that apparent today. No degradation over night. Hold.
