Much improved from my last review. Needs to decant some. Took to dinner and first taste was delish, but 30min to 1 hour in, this wine sang. Tannins are still present but softened enough to be quite integrated. Lots of dark fruit flavors, with an amazing finish. Had this with "Whole Hog" Dinner at Oliveto in Oakland and it went spectacularly. Well done. 2 bottles left - yum
Better then I expecred, great depth of flavors and concentration without going over the top. Well balanced dark chocolate, deep black cherry fruits and sweet tannins. Smooth and inviting giving lots of pleasure.
$100 bottle tasting (Home): Inky purple color, opaque, almost black. Sweet vanilla nose with a little wet forest. Warm, rich cherry flavors and smooth profile. Layers of cherry, blueberry. Medium/long finish. A lot of balance for such a powerful wine. It has a lot of time left. This was the favorite wine of the night. 50+5+13+17+9=94
