Still had time. Great structure, beautiful aromatics with strawberry, raspberry essence. Well balanced with tannins softening nicely . I believe there is still 3 more years of possible cellaring with the right conditions.
Expressive nose with sweet berry and melon. Approachable palate with good structure and balance. Pleasant tannins. Very good finish with blackberry, black cherry, and subtle pepper that becomes more pronounced with length of the finish.
Much better now, probably hitting its stride. Very expressive on the nose, with strawberry cake, blueberries, fennel, licorice, eucalypt, boiled beef, violets and spice. Full-bodied and velvety-textured with sweetness and big fruit, very nicely balanced by the silky tannins and sufficient acidity. The extremely high alcohol content (15.2%!) is very nicely integrated. Long aftertaste. Very voluptuous wine.
