Pretty demonstrative of Ty's wines. This is why they are an auto-buy when they appear on Woot. Solid, integrated. Really fruit forward. My one concern - I don't know that it really tastes that much different than another Ty blend. I'd still buy again.
We drank this through a vinturi, but still thought it was young and tight, despite it's already being 4 years off the vine. This one could definitely use an overnight decant. The color is a dark a purple as wine can get. The nose has deep, rich, still shy and reticent blackberry and plum with some vanilla and the aroma of tartaric acid. Big blackberry and black cherry fruit. Seems to have only moderate oak. The tannin structure is very civilized for a wine this big. The finish, for even a half hour later is big, raw, young acid that interferes with the current enjoyment of this wine.
