Drank while watching the Eagles beat up on Alex Smith and the 49ers. Really enjoyed it. Ten years old and it still amazingly dark purple, almost neon bright. Mostly rich dark purple fruits on the palate. Plums and spices like coriander and cinnamon. Super long finish. This is a huge wine.
Pitch black wine. Quite dark with bold cassis and spiced-vanilla blueberry liqueur notes. A huge, tannic monster on the palate with rough tannins that taste stemmy. A powerhouse wine, tannins mask the fruit and probably always will. **+/5
Black purple ink. Decanted 1 hr and totally expressive, and may I say supple and approachable?! All violet and acacia flowers on the nose. Palate was very spicy, with cocoa, black cherries, eucalyptus, somewhat primary now, with sweet tannins, medium long finish. Was maybe expecting more, but very good.
