A fabulous wine in the outstanding range for sure. Lovely barrel notes support deep cassis throughout the palate while the supple, generous texture leaves no hard edges lying around. This could have gone a few more miles in the cellar for sure but its drinking wonderfully right now.
WOW! I must and will get more of this. Pnp, but this needs 30 minutes to really open up and then it just gets better and better. Dark chocolate, cherries, some raspberry. On the palate its soft and plush, very balanced with a finish the went on and on. Highly recommend, great QPR.
