Opened for my daughter's engagement party. Crowd seemed to like it and the perfect setting for a mag, which never seems to fit smaller events. The wine is holding up quite well, witht efruit being still lively, with acidity still present. No signs yet of any older flavors. There is a note of raisins on the nose and yes, the wine is pretty ripe in style, over 16% but no hurry here from what we found with its development. Drink or hold a bit longer.
Big brambly nose and sweet unctuous fruit. Jammy, shows pretty good alcohol with some heat and raspberry liqueur. This wine is ready and but it's big so beware. I'll drink my last bottle of this before the summer is over.
Bottles like this remind me why FM is the Novy-pimp. Super-lush dark fuit and pepper with a slightly spicy finish marked with some chocolate notes. A bit short on the backside or I would score this higher. Tastes like a baby despite being 5 years old. Drinking beautifully and just delicious alongside grilled gass-fed beef burgers stuffed with blue cheese. Cheers.
