First glass showed much alcohol. Second glass opened up more, and by the fourth it was in gear. So, I guess surprising to me because I thought it would be old and tired, which it wasn't. IN fact, I wanted more from it - more fruit, more power. Maybe needs more time to fully open up?
This was open for three hours by the time I got to it. My wife had already finished a couple of glasses. She looked at me both knowingly and like she had committed a crime when I took the first sip. This was just bubbling with opulent aromas of red fruit - pomegranate, black cherry, maraschino cherry and goji, backed by a veil of smoke. Rich entry. So flavorful. Black cherry, woven with black currant and seasoned with sage. I loved the purity of the fruit. This seemed to gain some grip over time, which portends well for a long life. This is the best wine I've had in a while. Truly outstanding. 94
