Slight funk on opening to pop and pour. Blew off after half a glass. This is a fruit forward, chocolaty and cinnamon spiced merlot. Smooth textured with a rich and flavorful finish. Not sure how much time is left with this one, but is drinking really well right now.
Opaque, dark brick core, mature rim. Red fruit and iron nose. Mid-bodied, juicy, and long with notes of cooked cherries, red plums, red currants, black olives, gardenias, tobacco and eucalyptus. Closes on a beam of fierce acidity and graphite minerality. Chocolate gains traction with air. Smooth, opulent, and sexy.
