Great nose and nice finish upon opening. After a little over an hour breathing in bottle this wine gave a nice fruity Napa style nose, but in the mouth it had a big earthy old world feel. Good structure, elegance and polished tannins from 10 years of waiting, but still good fruit and acidity. Excellent wine. Ready to drink but no hurry.
Needs a long decant. After opening the wine was everything I expected. Smooth, bright fruit and cassis.....Earthy nose with Vanilla and Sour Cherry. Very balanced and harmonious full bodied...Long life ahead
The wine is densely colored, opaque, and the color is dark garnet with hints of purple at the edge. The smell is at first a wallop of sweet currant accompanied by spice, tar, jammy dark fruit... very expressive on the nose! The taste is currant, tobacco, blackberry, earthy notes, vanilla, and oak. This is a delicious Cabernet with lively acidity and fine tannins. The finish is long and the aromas and tastes are complex.
