The bouquet is not really expressive, but shows some red berry fruits, spiciness and oaky flavors. Same on the palate, some sweet spices, minerals, chocolate, rustic flavors, good acidity and sticky tannin. Give this wine some 4 – 6 years of ageing, so it can show its potential. 89+ for tonight.
Now almost 18 hours later (with no decanting and half the bottle left over night) the wine has finally started to open up. The nose is so very expressive and open offering up beautiful aromas of roses, earth, and vibrant red fruits. The wood has subsided and is no longer in the spotlight...This will be a wonderful wine in another 5+ years and should hold well for 10 or 15 more years to follow with good storage.
