First of 6 bottles and I am very pleased with what I am tasting. Plum colored with a bouquet of sweet tobacco, rose petals and cherry before offering the taster a wine which is very silky with finely integrated tannins that give way to strawberries and licorice. The wine does fall a bit short in terms of its finish but I do believe this wine will provide at least another 5 years of drinking.
Drinking well now. Sweet cherries and ripe strawberries on the nose. Silky mouth feel with almost sweet full-bodied texture. Easy to drink, although not the most complex or interesting flavors. In general I would like a little more acidity to balance the fruit. Also, while it's drinking well now, I don't see it being a wine that will improve tremendously with age due to the lower acidity, tannins and overall structure.
Tightly wound, broad shouldered red that is brawny and multi-faceted. Expressing enticing flavors of perfumed Damson plum, ripe blueberries and black cherry wrapped up in chunky, gripping tannins. Earthy in the middle with a dash of grated nutmeg. Solid as it rolls into the oak drenched, drying finish displaying cola and Columbian coffee beans. I'd prefer some more time in the bottle to let the pure fruit and the tannic structure integrate further.
