Full bodied, deep crimson color, rich, polished and accessible but a just a bit hot on the nose and finish, nose of spice, dark fruit, sweet tobacco, taste/mouth-feel is chewy, structured and fleshy. I think it is still young and will soften and integrate nicely with a little more time in the cellar.
Needed a strong wine for a rough day. Aromas of blackberry, currant, flowers, cherry and herb. This is a big, heavy bodied wine with flavors of blackberry, dark plum, mocha and coffee. Get a little burn of heat that dissipates with some time. Finish is long but a tad strange with a weird not that lingers. Should have decanted this but oh well.
give it air, or more time in the bottle, you will be rewarded. Four hour decant, through venture. Deep, dark, coat your mouth red blend, nicely integrated, medium to long finish. Always one of the best red wine blend values
Amazing but needs another 4 years. Opened and left for 24 hours in decanter-it finally became passible. Big with fruit, acid, and tannins- multidimensional with blackberry, cocoa , expresso, red current lush fruit. Back aspect on the nose and pallet with black tea, asian spice, and cigar tar from a full bodied cigar. Well made wine.
