Melka made? Tastes like it. Starts off a bit grapey and forward but then melds into a beautifully aromatic and powerful wine. Black currant dominated but this stuff runs the whole wheel. Very excellent
We decanted this wine for two hours. Deep burgundy red color. Very expressive notes of red figs, cherries, toast, licorice and vanilla. Very smooth tannins integrated with balanced acidity. Wonderful mouthfeel with layers of figs, black currant, vanilla, blueberries and coffee. Would have given this a higher score, but we wanted a little longer finish, but a really wonderful wine.
Excellent wine with great depth and Mouthfeel. Deep black color, less fruit forward than I would have thought for this Rutherford location. The build up over time 1hour decant exposed the soft mid palate and lingering finish. Paired with Slow cooked Kobe beef and the spicy notes with black fruits came alive. Worth the price
