Not decanted, consumed over ~2 hours. Slightly more open than the bottle we opened back on 12/22/2014, but otherwise similar. Good balance, simple dark red fruit, hints of wood and herbs. An enjoyable enough bottle, if not a particularly memorable one.
Not decanted, consumed over ~3 hours. This took some time to open up; at first, it was a bit dilute and ungiving, although I did note a promising finish. Over time, it gradually started to show lean dark berry/black currant fruit and pleasant dusty oak/cedar notes alongside tart acidity and subtle tannins. Just on the full side of medium-bodied.
A decent bottle, but somehow it didn't really push any buttons for me either alongside food or on its own. Hopefully future bottles will be more expressive.
Very dark garnet red coolor. PNP, drank 2 glasses over 2 hours. Nose has edar, fresh herbs, blueberry, plum, and licorice. The palate is medium-full bodied, with bluberry, plum, gravelly minerals, oak, nice tannnins, and a spiced finish. Overall pleasant and consistent with previous bottles.
