14.8% ABV. Translucent dark garnet in the glass. Complex aromatics that mostly speak of eucalyptus on this particular bottle. Medium full bodied and fully mature with most of its primary fruit flavors faded into the background. Subdued. I'd say drink up.
14.9% ABV. My last bottle of a case purchased on release. Dark garnet translucent in the glass. Complex nose of iron/blood and rare meat that reminds me a bit of Cote Rotie. Medium full bodied with rich red fruit. I'd say this is fully mature. Very good.
Appeared rather cloudy but with good color. A beautiful, nicely balanced wine. I got a lot of brambles and earth, with lighter fruit notes above it (raspberry). Some tasters also picked up coffee or cocoa. The alcohol is noticable, but overall it is well intergrated in a graceful package. Not a blockbuster wine, and not as full bodies as I might have expected, but it was a big hit with everyone who tried it. Stood up well to the dinner bluefish with pesto.
