Dark color with aromas of earthy plum, herbs and tobacco. Dark fruit, plum, leather and tobacco on the palate. Medium-bodied and balanced with a nice finish. A wonderful match for rack of lamb. Drink now-2018. 92+ pts.
Opened by Allred with dinner. As his note states, this has a Bordeaux profile, but there also is the fruit present. Thus my score. A lovely bottle. I think I'll hold onto my '12's for a few years if this is what they will evolve into.
Popped & poured, having recently acquired a six-pack directly from the winery. Aromas of meat, roasted bell pepper, tobacco and mixed berry fruit. Medium-bodied with nicely integrated tannin and flavors of black fruit, plum, curing spices, roasted game and herbs. In a great spot right now. 93 for me, 94 for Domino, 95 for Mrs. TLV and 92 for TLV (a generous score from him considering how Bordeaux-like this is).
