Fresh and fairly complex nose of blackberry, blackcurrant, jam, tobacco, etc. Full bodied, very fruity, with high acidity and moderate tannins to be further integrated over time. Very enjoyable and easy to drink, without being simplistic.
Deep, dark ruby red. This is a lovely, complex wine. Upon opening, bright red fruits, tart cherry and chewy tannins. But 24 hours later in opened bottle with a stopper, it has mellowed into a rich fruit compote with a loong finish and mouth watering top notes of red/purple fruits... Plum. Enjoyed with a carne asade quesadilla supreme from Don Tommy's in OB/San Diego, which it handled with aplomb! Great now, with a serious decant... But it will go the distance, so be patient, if you can.
Nyrørte bjørnebær, blyantspiss, einebær, høy, harpiks, lysbrent kaffe og vanilje. Ganske bløt frukt i munnen, men høy friskhet og faste, overraskende tørrende tanninene. Syren er litt røff og stikkende. Sursøt. Ganske bra fokus. Veldig god konsentrasjon og lengde. Munnen følger opp nesen, men med mer vanilje og kaffe. Fast avslutning. 88p.
