- Brick color with slow forming legs and aromas of cherry, cedar and tobacco. It's balanced and has flavours of licorice anise, cherry, fig and dusty with a medium/full body. Round texture with a medium finish - Decanted 4 hours, the wine needs to open up. Rich dark fruit and cola on the finish.
Opened some 2 hours before - needed if. Lovely on the nose: raspberries, prunes, cooked cherries, old wood, tobacco, vegetal. Plenty of tannins still, with similar flavours as on the nose, but somewhat thinner. Plenty of finish. Overall a very good wine, which in my view will develop over the next 2 to 5 years.....not too sure any more than that.
PnP, drank over 2 days. Nice dark opaque color. Good nose of dark berries, leather and a hint of earth. First day the best, intense dark fruit, earth and smooth mouthfeel. Second day it had lost its power. medium finish - don't think this is in for the long haul.
