Beautiful and deeply colored, with pleasing aromatics, full of balanced fruit and subdued herbs. I hesitate to give it a score because it was drank while in Holiday conversation and so, a non-critical setting; without focus. Everyone complimented and enjoyed it but it was far short of extraordinary.
This was a roller coaster....started odd, bitter nose...after a half hour decant some vanilla and fruit, but medium long finish with soy sauce, black olive finish... 30 min later, smooth with plum, nice medium finis in, but another 30 min, this went bitter, tart, little fruit, borderline awful...cork had good integrity so was surprised with the journey. Hope bottle 2 is better. What a disappointing ride.
It's been 18 months since I last had this and it's definitely improved. I thought this was beautiful. A lot of red fruit and smells very sweet on the nose - in a really lovely way. Gets a v high score from me because at this price point I think it's just very successful.
