This wine is in a great place right now. Color is deep red, not yet bricking. Big nose of fresh ripe blackberries, mission figs, fennel, sarsaparilla, leather, and hints of white pepper. Palate says blackberry and pepper, with a slightly bitter, long leathery finish. Still has plenty of tannin and will likely continue to improve over the next few years. A nice balance of fresh and secondary flavors. I'm ecstatic that I still have a bottle remaining! Hoping I can find more of this at a decent price.
