Luftet 1 time. Mørk rubinrød. Nese dominert av mocca, treverk, jord, mørke bær og noe mineraler i form av jern. På en måte forventet med tanke på fatbruken her. I munnen er det bra med frukt og den oppviser god konsentrasjon og intensitet. Litt jordlig avslutning. Tilgjengelige tanniner. Best med mat til. Vil trolig utvikle seg videre, men drikk innen 5 år pga frukten.
2 hr. decant. Dark cherry, violets, orange peel, Louisville Slugger (must be the American Oak), soy sauce, worcestershire. Just beginning to show that leathery tertiary characteristic. Great balance, nice sandy tannins. Drinking beautifully now, can't wait to see how it continues to evolve.
55F, PnP. Medium red. Stone and fruit on the nose, strong tannins predominate followed by bright red fruit and acid with long finish. Opens up showing more leather, warm earth and other flavors I can't pinpoint. Amazing the freshness for age. Very nice and will be nice for a lot longer.
Nebbiolo Night: Came as a blind quite in late to the dinner, still easily recognizable as fairly traditional Rioja. It's got the mature side of leather, spices and tobacco, but manages to retain freshness and tasty fruity side as well. Delicious and savoury. Thus, I'd say this is in a good place right now. No hurry at all though, these are ageworthy wines.
