A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and and a bit of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Chocolate, coffee and dark fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, long finish and stunning perplexity. Sip now or wait another decade or two...amazing!!!
Opened about 2 hours prior to pouring, no decant. Splurged for Mother's Day at a steak house. The nose started things off with a bang. Terrific nose of blackberry, cassis, anise and spice. I could have sat and smelled it for hours. The only thing holding down the rating from the high 90s was its relative youth. The palate had complexity, depth and acidity but was ever so slightly disjointed and powerful tannins took a little pleasure away. I'm just nit-picking though as this is an outstanding wine and shows every sign of growing into a completely harmonious experience given another 5 to 10 years of age.
Has great ammount of texture. Awesome weight. Layered and complex with pure blue and black fruit. Great chocolate and spice on the finish which lasts 1+ minute. Very concentrated. This is a great wine.
Cedar, loam, iron, burning embers, tobacco, soy, red cherry, white peach, time ->brighter fruit. Palate - cassis, cherry, grilled oak, iron, dense fine grain tannin, very coated tannin, in five years this will be seamless although a pleasure young.
