Very dark in appearance. The nose is muted at first though over time it opens up, revealing some secondary aromas. The palate seems very closed. It's powerful, masculine, but just not quite open for business. This needs another five years in the cellar at least, but certainly has good potential, though I wouldn't necessarily assume that potential will be realized. Right now it's probably only an 89, but my range would be 89-93.
Nice! Deep brilliant dark in color, assertive nose of black fruit, spice and a touch of oak. Young and a tad tight now, but it opens up to exotic ripe fruit, spice, almost a buckwheat/grain type quality. Yum!
