wonderful wine that took a couple of hours to truly show it's colors and flavor. First 30-45 minutes the wine was brittle and light but with a stunning nose of great things to come. Every 30 minutes following opened more and more of a beautiful bouquet of floral, earth, and light chocolate tones to the tongue. Medium finish. Very satisifying with short rib and a chocolate puff pastry for dessert.
Dark red, some garnet. Profoundly interesting nose of hard coal dust (not experienced since childhood, not ever before in wine), spearmint, chocolate, cherry, leather. Low tannin, low acidity. On the palate, the silky structure enables the chocolate mint with cherry theme to dance in a wonderful match with a simply braised roast beef and mixed veg. Bottle #2 of two.
