This is quite restrained right now. Not tannic but very muted especially on the palate. The nose is quite good with dark cherry and earthy tones but is holding back. The palate is even more restrained. It needs at least 5 years to unfold.
Almost extraordinarily underwhelming right now. Excellent aromatics -- very earthy. Palate is where it falters. Doesn't know what it wants to be -- now or when it grows up. Drinks, frankly, like a $40 bottle. Do the aromatics bump it up to market? No. Try again 3+ years out and hope for better......
Quite a deep, dark colour; fresh, ripe, black cherry nose; dark fruits on the palate, which is soft, with good weight and a very slight spritz (which I am not too keen on). This is tasting fairly mature, but there is still a little tannin on the finish and I think it will keep well. Overall, a fine example.
