This one is ripe for the taking. From the first pour, it gives loads of meaty black fruits. Perhaps the best part, though, is the rich cocoa/mocha overtone that keeps it compelling and holds everything together. A rich, but balanced, treat. It will likely be fine for a few years, but my remaining bottles won't last that long.
Big fruit maybe a little flabby right now. Tannins soft and sweet. Great start good middle but the end floats away leaving me wondering what just happened. Overall I like it and I wish I could rate it higher. Will try on the next bottle. Overall a really good wine and maybe I was just expecting a little more.
Popped and poured. Deep purple/violet, youthful. Expressive aromas immediately off the pop of black pepper, crushed stones, spicy oak and dark fruits, the latter two elements gaining prominence with aeration. Medium-plus body. More fruit on the palate and even more stony mineral notes. Nicely balanced with smooth, well-integrated tannins on the plus close. Drinking nicely right now and will age for many years, great stuff.
