Has improved with age. Dark garnet intense bouquet of sandalwood and leather. Great foward flavor of chocolate and dark berries mid of maybe olive finish long of brambel. When young was pff balance and tanic. Great wine drink now before all the fruit is gone
This was a great bottle of wine. It wasn't over the top with fruit, but still had tons of dark berry flavors. Drinking perfectly now. Tar on the nose and even some mineral/earthy tones mixed in on the finish. A bit more raisin came out on the nose after a day. But still held up perfectly. Drink now-2016. Agree with the previous notes about this being a poor QPR. But it was still a good wine.
Medium ruby color, with a clear hue. Unremarkable nose. Light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Palate shows two distinct elements: raisans & prunes upon entry, followed by unexpectedly sharp acidity & quite dry tannins on the short, tart finish. Good, but needs food. [14.8% abv.; $35.00].
