Drinking great. Intense and complex nose on the 1st pouring. I think aeration/decanting shouldn't be done. Huge expansive nose of purple fruits, violets and earth. Smooth tannins give the medium cherry fruit and older notes (mineral, soft cherry and light oak) a lift through a smooth finish. It should drink this well for a couple years.
Dark ruby color with purple margins. Nose is rich and deep, which you can smell more than a metre away, reminiscent of plums and blackberry jam. Dry, medium plus bodied, black currant & blackberries, with some tobacco & car leather. Medium minus tannins, quite pleasant. Medium plus finish and complexity.
Lots of black fruits and a little hot on the nose. Black fruits, graphite, red tea leaves and dark chocolate with mild tannins and good acidity in the palate. Mid to long finish. Still have 2-5 years in the peak. Perfect for grilled steak!
