Medium dark garnet color. Pleasant, moderate dark red fruit aromas. First taste was not at all what I was expecting. The tannins were so smooth as to make me wonder if they existed. Moderate dark red fruit was present. Wine seemed one dimensional with acid being the main ingredient. As the wine opened up, more complexity showed up. Turned out to be a wonderful food wine. Fair amount of sediment so be prepared.
Had with roast pork loin. Deep purple-bblack to the edge. Perfumed dark fruit with some earth on the nose. Very Bordeaux in style. This is a big wine. Coming into balance with good balance and a lot of life left in it. Notes of earth with bodacious fruit and softening tannins. This wine will be even better in 3-5 years.
