Red and black berries, spices, cedar wood, leather and maybe hint of ripe fruits on the nose. Bouquet is quite complex with decent intensity. Palate has lively acidity and tannins are plenty, but already rounded. It took while to wine to open and after that fruit showed up with nice and balanced density. Decent length. Overall was nice wine at the peak.
(Rhône tasting, Genius in Gastronomy) The nose is of mild intensity offering small stone fruits, some oak with a bit of leather too. The palate has more density though, high fruit tones of plum, balancing acidity, a bit animal scents there as well, tannins are there but (a bit) drying and some spicy notes. Overall it is a nice wine but it does appear to be disjoint at certain points.
Garnet with a tawny rim. Evolved meaty nose with cinnamon, black fruit, olives and evident oak. Hints of Brett? Spicy and leathery on palate with slightly astrigent tannins, loosing a bit in persistence of fruit and mid-palate concentration. Delicious at this point.
