Paired well with World Series Game 3 and slow smoked pork ribs. The cork crumbled so I had to decant to remove the bits and pieces. The wine was impressive. Leather nose red fruited up front, creamy strawberry mid-palate, spicy finish with darker fruit and polished tannins. Drinking at its' peak? Not sure, had a glass left in the decanter this morning and it was still alive and kicking. The drinking window listed here doesn't do this wine justice. Should still go a couple more years before fading.
Lifted aromatics of red fruit, herbs, stems and an interesting medicinal note. Palate is bright and fresh with medium- bodied fruit. Plenty or crackling acidity provides persistence across the palate. Good medium plus finish of red berries and spice. In a really stride right now. Plenty of freshness and energy -- showing no signs of fading.
Drinking just great right now - with mature fruit and nuanced secondary herbal, stem, smoked meat and earth notes. Palate has medium body with juicy underlying acidity. Fruit is plush and soft with restraint that doesn't tire the palate. Great persistence from start to finish.
