Excellent wine in a wonder place right now. Pop-n-pour to a slightly bricking color. Cherry and strawberry, with cured meats and cacao, backed up with fresh ground black pepper. Silky tannins round it out.
A very captivating wine with lots of aromatic components ranging from sweet strawberry fruit to darker notes of pit fruit, than there is a whole array of other aromatic components ranging from dried herbs to eucalyptus and tobacco notes as well as some exotic spice cabinet smells and old leather. The flavor profile is full but not heavy at all if anything more on the elegant side. Good balance on the finish. This showed well within minutes of a splash decant and there was very little sediment. Overall i would highly recommend drinking it now or in the near future to enjoy the kaleidoscope like aromatics. Tasty stuff.
The wine is a medium to dark ruby color. The intoxicating nose has cherries, plums, earthy underbrush, violets, leather, smoke, tobacco, dark chocolate, and a touch of licorice. This has a medium to full body with fairly solid tannins and very good acidity. On the palate the earthy cherries and plums lead the way with dried herbs and spice providing the follow up. The finish has decent length but is losing some of the richness and oomph and a touch of alcohol is beginning to poke through. This still tasted very nice, but I think is has started on the downhill path.
