A nicely balanced Bordeaux with licorice, tobacco, dark berries, and bacon on the nose. The color is a deep ruby and the palate offers mushroom, wet soil, dark berries, licorice, and sour cherry finishing nicely with chocolate and spices. Good acidity and tannins. Ready to drink but can go for few more years.
Seems to be in a slumber now. Decanted 1 hour before dinner and drank over the following 3-4. Very monotonous with hard edges and thick tannins, though soft red and black fruit emerged near hour four. No nose to speak off, other than slight whiffs of raspberries. The palate is jagged, full, and loaded with dense structure bringing dark cherries, blackberries, and even candied strawberries, with coffee, leather, and some tobacco notes. The finish is sweet and tangy but still too dusty. I'd hold and drink this 2018-2024.
Decanted 1 hr then tasted over two nights. All the pieces are there but it's just not offering much excitement. It is nicely constructed with good balance between fruit, acid, and tannin... just kind of blah. Clearly entering maturity, it is doubtful this develops beyond the weekday burger wine that is in the bottle today.
