  • Dark black mineral inspired aromas with interesting notes of sandlewood and dried blackberries. Dark dense dried fruit flavors with bright streak of acid. Impressive intensity to a dark rich middle core of black fruits. A big brooding wine with edgy rustic appeal. Very good tention and long finsh showing a touch of black char. Comes acccross much younger than age. Long life ahead and maybe some upside. This is masuline and begs for a hearty meal.

  • Outstanding wine. Very deep inky colour. Complex and elegant nose dominated by black fruit. Blackberry jam, dried plums, underwood, dried flowers - mainly violet - clove, graphite, cigarbox and a hint of balsamic. At the palate is impressive: lots of alcohol counterbalanced by huge soft tannins and a good acidity. Long finish. Oak seems very well integrated now. Drink or hold for a few more years.

  • Way too much Oak. Which is too bad, because there is some interesting good fruit underneath there.

    2 hours in decanter.... OK, some of the oak is blowing off and integrating better. the strong herbal nose is relaxed to a garrigue/flower shop note... can still smell the oak though... but not bothersome now. Very juicy acidity, tanginess, and some unique citrus fruits... a bit too much heat on the back end... probably too young or did not decant long enough.
