Lush, full-bodied blackberry/black raspberry fruit, very smooth and round, excellent structure, showing some age as fruit is less fresh, medium finish, tannins completely mellowed, very little evidence of high alcohol despite wine being 15.9%, the thick lushness is like drinking a milkshake, very good wine but not worth $120 per bottle
BYO - US wines (NO.2): Dense, expressive and compact with a lot of jammy fruit. Even though it seems alcoholic and jammy, there is still that amazing SQN lightness and balance that makes everything worth while.. A beautiful bottle!!
