87 first night (closed), 93 the second. Luscious black fruit paste on the nose, with glycerin, fruit, cigar box, and white pepper in the mouth the second night. Finish was sweet oak with a bitof hard tannins, or the score would have been higher.
Found this wine to be in excellent shape. Dark ruby red color. Still plenty of fruit, but secondary flavors developing. Beautiful nose of black fruits, berries, cedar and some eucalyptus. Black and red fruits, minerals and fine grained tannins on the medium to full bodied palate. Just a touch of heat holds the score in check. Nice, lingering finish.
