Decanted .30, nice nose of black cherries , dark currants. The palate is rather thin & simple, with dark plum, wide berries, tannins fully integrated. IMO and based on this bottle my 6th of 8, drink soon!
The aromatics were very obvious while decanting…dark fruit and leather foretold what lies ahead. The palate experience was one of rich, thick, ripe, dark fruit…coating every crevice. A very lengthy finish of fine tannins and mild acidity. Extraordinary.
Drinking well right now. Inky garnet color. Still ample fruit, mostly blackberry and some dark cherry but this is becoming more balanced with age. Oak, sage and some savory flavors are more apparent now than the last bottle I drank. Very enjoyable but further development is unlikely.
