Very nice wine. Drank well right out of pop&pour. Very tasty. Nicely in balance. Bigger than a bordeaux but less powerful than a cult cab. Really nicely put together wine that would make many drinkers happy.
Decanted for one hour, and it could have benefited from additional time in the decanter. Bright dark fruits and a bit of funk on the nose. Very dark but bright deep purple color, still showing its relative youth. On the palate it's got a stout structure with solid acidity, ample tannins and a lively and fresh finish. Still seems young and with a good life ahead of it. 92++.
Purple rim hinting at high Petit Verdot content. Closest to a classic Bordeaux nose of tasting. Small berries reflected in firm structure. Beautiful overwhelming fruit and mocca-chocolate Lots of juice with tannins nicely integrated. Seems to be at a peak now
Dinner with Jim Dullanty and Dave Mullen at Crabtrees in Chappaqua. Jim'a WOTN. Only decanted for about 30 minutes, would suggest longer decant on this wine. Some funk and alcohol on the nose, settles down after an hour.
dark fruit am integrated oak, chocolate, cedar. Well made wine, long life ahead of it, this one is still a baby.
