Light-med red, dark core. Deeply scented, ripe red berries, violets, roses, blueberries. Fragrant, well balanced. Supple attack followed by a long medium + powerful middle and finish. Some earth and caramel in the mix with ripe berries, licorice, plums and blueberries. Rich in a nicely smooth balanced style. Drinking beautifully, tannins evident but inobtrusive. Nice.
Brought to a dinner. Decanted 2.5 hours before we got around to this. When first poured we thought it looked quite aged and smelled tired. After two hours this was just singing. Beautiful wine. Black cherry, tobacco, pine needles, hint of soy, charred earth. Kept getting more complex and more open as the night went on. Wouldn't drink by itself but when paired with food this was spot on.
