Jumps out of the glass with layers of dark fruit, cherries, some red fruits, minerals, spices and some dark chocolate. Pretty full body and very dense, but with some acidity and tannins adding structure. It's an "in-your-face" kind of wine, but really well made. It's fun to drink a glass or two... but it should develop some more complexity to get a higher rating.
Opened for 1 hour and drank over two days. Very dark purple color. This 2008 offers a bouquet made of barnishes, red ripe fruit, laurel and more balsamic aromas along with a medicine note and mocha. On palate it's a bit dry, still with present tannins. It's powerful, meaty and medium to full bodied, with kirsh liquor. It finishes with a long red liquor fruit flavour. I feel it just a bit monolithic on mid palate and probably it has a bit too much "fat". It showed better on day to. 91+
