Starting to mellow with age, I wish I had more to see how it evolves. A complex wine with a lot of interesting flavors. On the nose besides dark fruit and some spice is minerality, salinity and ocean. On the body it starts big but smooths out into a long finish. Again minerality plus pencil lead and a bit of leather and wood. PDQ92+
Slight downgrade from my first bottle a few months ago. Same black cherries on the nose, Same cherries, chocolate, and spices, yadda, yadda, yadda. Still very nice and still a good value, but everything seemed a little muted with this one. Could be bottle variation, or it could be that whoever established the 2013 drink-by date knew what they were doing.
