Deep purple. Old Barnyard, warm cedar and dark fruit nose. Dry, full bodied, high acidity, soft supple tannins, medium plus alcohol. Blackberries, boysenberries, cedar, warm vanilla, hints of chocolate. Balanced and well made. Tight but still very good. Hopefully opens up in an hour. Long finish. Recommended
Weekly tasting group #117; A mixed set. (@ DJ): Beautiful bouquet with red and dark forest fruits, cherries, a bit lactic, but also iodine, licorice and herbs and spices. On the palate full bodied good cherries and blackberries, juicy and good acidity in a nice balance with some sweetness, spiciness and iodine again, well integrated oak and slightly drying tannin. Really nice wine. Fully mature now, but no real hurry.
