Very secondary nose with some Brett notes, saddle leather and earthy components, on the pallet more brambly fruit, BlackBerry, raspberry, it's a bit of a paradox in that it has acidic, red fruit mixed with slightly riper elements. Much better than the last bottle I would definitely give it some time to open up though couple hours. Minimum.
Black and dense in the glass. Tarry nose with some anise, and a faint eucalyptus note developes with time. Massively concentrated on the palate with black oil-cured olive and some herbs. Desperately needs more time. Too bad I only had one bottle!

(Sean Thackrey Orion Rossi Vineyard) From magnum - very dark red violet color; roasted plum, eucalyptus, pine needle, anise, fennel, mint nose; wonderful, rich, cherry, pine sap, rhubarb, pepper palate with firm sweet tannins; lip smacking long finish of raspberry and chocolate
