  • Not fully mature, but in a very nice place with its nose of flowers, boysenberry,black cherry, bitter chocolate, licorice, truffle and a sprig of mint. Even better, the silky, soft, mineral driven wine finished with sweet and tart, stony, dark, red fruits. The wine improved in the glass after an hour of air. This is drinking quite well today. It's going to develop more complexities, but at close to 16 years of age, you should start drinking it. I am.

  • drank over two nights, not that great a bottle of wine, but would say the nose was outstanding, big big nose of cherry and apricot pits, both nights it was powerful, palate was devoid of fruit on night one, some graphite, some leather, some hint of bell pepper, on night two it was dulled down, low acid / soft, again no fruit to speak of, not a rebuy for me at all... was a totally diff bottle than Texanoblues experienced

  • Pretty enjoyable but not as developed as I expected.

  • Very dark, youthful purple colour. Expressive nose of dark plums, chocolate, sweet spices like vanilla and cinnamon. Still intense sweet oak. Medium to full-bodied, soft but needs time to integrate the oak further. Medium acidity and good length. Would improve with further cellaring.

  • Cork in good condition. Decanted. Quite a lot of fine sediment which was easy to remove. Intense, deep red in the glass with no orange or violet hues. Black cherry nose, with forest floor, spice and bell pepper. Smooth and velvety on the palate with cherry, leather, mint, and mineral notes. Intense and concentrated without any heaviness. Lively, with ample acidity and appropriate alcohol. Really nice bottle, full of life. Still youthful, but coming of age.

    This, after four hours in decanter. It did take time to open.
