Allowed to breathe in glass 30 minutes before tasting. Clear deep dark garnet-blood-ruby color. Elegant bouquet of fresh mixed flowers, dusty cherries, creme de cassis, spice box, and forest floor. Intermittent savory notes of beef blood were not bothersome. Rich, balanced, full bodied on the palate, with medium finish.
Tasted blind among some heavy hitter reds. Last flight of the night, so notes are a bit sketchy (!) Ranked 3/5 in its flight My blind notes: Nose - rich dark fruit. caramel/ mint Mouth - decadent, woody, plenty of structure - a mouthful Finish - big, long ** I had the remains of this the next day. wow. 2 oz in the bottom of the bottle 24 hours later and IT WAS EVEN BETTER. lovely, lovely wine.**
