Decanted for 2 hours. Inky purple/black color. Spicy, smoky nose with lavender, fennel and licorice leads to flavors of dark fruit and powdery tannins. Rich and moderately intense with a dry finish, I would suggest drinking this in the near term. Now through 2015
Pulled this beauty from my cellar last week and glad I did. Drinking wonderfully with nice integrated tannins and resolved berry fruit. Perfect with Taylor's bone in ribeye. One more bottle and I think I'll wait a few years.
Somewhat funky nose, a little dirty/musty with fruit and cola. Flavors of raspberry and blackberry with coffee and mild spice and vanilla. Was a nice compliment to a salt and peppered ribeye steak. Have a couple more that will let sit for a couple years.
