oh pretty much what i was hoping for. popped thus baby about 4 hours before drinking.Even then it was still hot on the nose and on the finish. As the night progressed it evolved well. Great earthyness, black olive and some nice smoky character.Mouth feel in mt mind was perfect not to heavy but not watery and flat. Bottle will age great another 3-5 years.
Notes from day 2. Dark purple in color. On the nose there was blueberries, violets, chambord, cocoa, graphite, toast. On the palate there was dark fruit, blackberries, cassis, leather, cocoa powder, white pepper. The finish was above average and the tannin was still notable. This was much better on day 2 because it was too tight and tannic on day 1. Will hold my last bottle for at least 5 more years before revisiting. Would agree that there is a lot going on with this wine, but DR. Jay is indeed way off. Hold. 50+5+14+17+8
Deep dark purple and clear Powerful aromas earthy, tar, burnt rubber, maybe auto suggested, underneath black berries. mouth big big big. Peppery, blackberries, tar lots of acid and tannins - still quite young and tight but a lot there.
