Powerful nose of ripe cherries, plums and oriental spice like cumin. The wine is full-bodied, slowly shedding its tannins and become more approachable. This is definitly not a modern, parkerized wine, it has all components (acidity, tannins and fruit) to age effortless for another 10-20 years.
Reddish purple with lightening around the edges. Aromas of earth, asian spice and tar, dark red plums and black cherry crushed fruit on the nose. High toned red fruit frames a medium bodied, earthy wine with good acidity, graphite, hints of spice, discernible oak and fine tannins on the finish. This will get better with more time.
