Great nose of cassis, sweet vanilla oak and black cherry. Soft well integrated tannins on the front are slightly rough and drying on the back. Elegant mouthfeel with toasty sweet vanilla oak, black cherry and a sweet cassis or possibly raspberry follows to medium rough tannins and medium finish. This wine will evolve and would like to come back to it in 3 - 5 years.
Wow, this was different from my previous bottle. Medium-to-full bodied, not hollow at the center at all, this showed nice fruit, graphite, smooth tannins, and stayed drinkable over several days. Just a hint of brett that below off within an hour or so. Now I wish I had more.
