Initial aromas of smoke and plum, lead to red fruits, charcoal, dusty earth, clean fresh blueberry develops with a couple hours of air. Super juicy red fruit that overwhelms, in a good way, then a savory, charred herb thing going on mid palate. Tannins are resolved and the bright acidity is such a defining characteristic, tart and crunchy, yet perfectly ripe. A wave of red fruit persists on the finish, then I get more of that blueberry that just hangs on forever. This is really good.
Nice and dark and a bit of an almost prunish streak (but a sweeter and less tart version). The wine has some oak and comes across as very dark. It's not overly complex, but it's an easy drinking wine that has some character and depth and a great QPR.
Absolutely delicious after a 3 hour decant, rich, clear delineated flavors of blueberry and cherry, a hint of bacon fat, terrific wine I wish I had more of. Went well with tri-tip, roasted root vegetables and plum chutney. The wine stood up to and complemented the meal. Excellent.
