Popped and poured. 6th and best bottle from a 6-pack purchased at auction middle of last year. Lots of black fruit aromas with some liqueur hints. The most fresh bottle on both nose and palate. Black cherry and blackberry flavors are fleshy, dense and well concentrated with good overall structure and balance. At a very good place now, good for probably another decade. Best 15-30 minutes after opened, less exciting 2 hours later.
Fresh black fruit aromas with a hint of liqueur. Also fresh flavors with some meaty, sauvage character and dense spice. The best bottle of the six-pack I've been working through the past few months. Very good.
Lots of fresh black fruit aromas with plenty of spice. A little woodsy on the palate with plenty of firm tannins. Structure and firmness balance the fruit density well, making me think this is just entering its peak drinking window.
All black fruit aromas with some meaty spice, still showing a hint of new oak. Same blackberry and black cherry flavors, some spice hints, still a bit too firm in the middle, but good power and balance on finish. Two identical bottles.
