Drinking beautifully right now. Popped and poured. The nose jumps out with dark fruits and cassis. Such a smooth palate filled with fruit and spice. As others mentioned, the high alcohol is not detectable. Possibly time in the bottle has helped to balance it out.
Needed 30 mins in the decanter to get its act together - tasted a little off immediately after opening ... it more than came around. Deep, rich color. Beautiful nose. Lots of dark fruit with just a little spice, flirts with being jammy but does not cross the line, the high alcohol is well integrated so not a distraction ... there is a clear B&H lineage in this bottle. Full discolsure - my wife would have rated this higher.
Drank this back to back with a Quintessa and it more than held its own. Decanted and drank with food. Beautiful nose and the fruit to back it up. Structured but elegant with an long finish. This wine is drinking very well right now. Hard to believe it was over 15% alcohol - very balanced.
