Generous Decant given. No sediment detected. Wave after wave of legs form and slowly fall, holding the color of the wine showing the moderate+ concentration. Dark garnet in color and clear with no rim variation. Aromas show with moderate-plus intensity. Plum, currant, red cherry, fig and blackberry fruit with a wave of strong chocolate, cassis, cedar and mountain herbs. Ancillary notes of black pepper, vanilla, fresh tobacco, coffee, new leather and pencil shavings. The palate is bold, exuberant and youthful. Tannins are grippy and full while balanced with medium-plus acidity. Flavors burst with plum, cherry, currant, cassis, fig, cedar, chocolate, fresh mountain herbs, coffee and graphite. The full, dry finish lingers with intensity.
Overall still very youthful, though delicious now still needs time. Well built.
Popped and poured. Deep purple color with aromas of sweet cedar, oak and black fruits. This is a pleasure to drink. Flavors of black cherry, a hint of tobacco and a sweet streak of oak. I love these wines for the consistency although I feel this wine is a touch sweet for my taste. This is great with or without food.
Deep red color wine that is opaque, showing high concentration and medium viscosity. Through 3 hours of decant, the nose is still a bit tight but aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, cassis, vanilla and wood. The palate is bursting with concentrated fruit flavors that include blackberry, blueberry, dark cherry. Flavors of light roast coffee, oak, caramelized sugar and anise on the palate. The acidity is medium-plus and adds to the mid palate, tannins are mature, and well integrated and balanced with the rest of the wine! The finish is long This wine definitely requires time in a decanter at this point, and remains a little tight, a year or two in the cellar should treat this very well. (90-92 at this point but I think will blossom nicely)
