Price keeps going up. So evidently does the quality. Black fruit. Impenetrable. Nose just coming around. No need to drink this year or next. As it stayed open for a few hours, a love chocolate tinge entered the picture. Not overpowering or simple though
2015 New York Wine Experience Trip; 10/19/2015-10/27/2015 (New York City, NY): This is nothing short of a gorgeous Cabernet. Opaque crimson, rich and layered, it delivers aromas and flavors of black bramble fruits, espresso, dried herbs, licorice, dark chocolate and allspice. Full-bodied and with low-to-medium acidity, it supports its flavors with substantial silky-textured tannins. The alcohol (listed as 14.5%) is beautifully integrated, as is the wine's oak. Showing impressive mid-palate density, it finishes very long. Impressive to think that this is a "second wine," although one must also consider its sticker price (which says anything other than "second"). Drink 2020-2032.
Deep in color, with licorice, black coffee, smoke, earth, blackberry and boysenberry on the nose. The medium/full bodied, elegant wine is soft, forward and open for youthful pleasure, with a dusty, ripe, sweet, lush, black cherry character from start to finish.
