PnP, took 30 or so mins to warm up and pass over the early green stage of primary notes. Once out, there was plenty of blueberry, raspberry, loads of white pepper, very mushroom earthy. The palate is much the same, with a gorgeous white pepper finish.
Outstanding. rich finesse full blueberry and blackberry notes, with a great smoky meaty nose. On the mouth: silky tannins, already integrating, seamless balance great acidity, great fruit great savory characteristics coming through very complex. Not cheap but unbeatable at the price point. Should handle many years more but drinking exceptionally well right now.
Decanted and drank some over 4 or 5 hours, rebottled and recorked overnight. TN is on the wine the next morning. Labeled at 13% ABV
Deep red. Hints of flowers, vanilla cream under plums, garrigue, cherry, bloody meat, bacon fat, dust. A bit of pepper in the palate with plums, cherry, meat, crushed rocks, orange peel. Nice pop of acid at the end. Very fine tannins. Very good bottle, with many elements that I really enjoy, but it leaves me wanting something more...
Leave it alone for a while, or give it a longer decant.
