Extremely dark wine with lovely texture and fruits and a meaty quality at first. Slow ox'ed for 7 hours and decanted for another hour and this thing was big and awesome. If any faults a bit monolithic but very smooth. Tannins have resolved and it is really enjoyable to drink. Alcohol was not affecting the enjoyment of this wine at all even with a 16.2 label. Enjoyable wine and wish I had more!!
Aerated with a Vinturi and decanted 1.5 hours. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, blueberry, violets, smoked meat and vanilla. Dense with waves of flavor. Leads to a very long finish. Served with grilled lamb chops.
I pulled this in a rush for a BBQ without realizing the magnitude of the wine. Wow this was a stunner! Melting asphalt and intense black cherry aromas. Rich focused smoky tarry black dense sweet fruits, smooth rich and creamy with long black spiced finish. Crazy great, just wish I could have focused on this in quieter setting to contemplate its nuances.
