Big wine. Very nice, plush black and blue fruits on the palate, with an extremely rich finish. Great balance overall, and drinking well now. Excellent wine with a big meal - pretty massive to drink on its own.
Decanted 1hour Nice dark red color. Clay raspberry, black berry nose. A bit subtle. More fruit than chocolate. Nice flavors. Nice fruit. Strong tannins, high acid. Little ink like smell on the nose. Tasty stuff. Little mint on the nose. Very good fruit. Very good daily drinking wine.
Dark purple with primary notes of cassis, ripe black cherry, and a hint of olive. The palate is rich with fruit, has a mouth watering acidity, and still fairly prominent tannins. This is delicious, but still quite young. I suspect it will be more interesting in another 5-10 years.
