At first i didn't get much nose on this deeply red-purple wine, but that's ok. The juicy blue fruit nose arises in time. Was it too cold at first? Did it just need some time? This food friendly, assertive wine has blueberry/boysenberry flavors riding on a tangy mineral/tannic frame with a finish that lasts, making this a very pleasant complement to a meal.
Fabulous wine. I only have 3 bottles left and really need to keep my hands off of them. Delicious, but I think another 3-5 years and this wine will be off the charts good. Incredible body, dark purple color, lingering aftertaste that just went on and on. A real keeper. Just another great TCV wine.
The TCV vintage chart says this wine is in "early maturity." I disagree. It is still very young. Incredibly inky, purple color, rich tannins, broad mouth feel. I would leave until 2016 before I try one again. Loved this wine, however.
Still pretty disintegrated. I decanted one hour. A bit closed in. Very tight wine. I would say this has great potential, but I will not try another bottle from the cellar for at least 1 year, maybe two.
