At Jess and Matt's 'Wedding.': now this wine is wound up. TIGHT. big and dense, but not too expressive off of the nose. dark black and some teased up baking spice. but again, really wound tight and not too giving at the moment. palate is much more giving. full, dark and brooding, with some fresh blackberry fruit appeal. loaded wiith fresh wild fruit spice, some violet floral nuance to the palate. medium/+ tannin. Day 2. Full and black fruit, open. Violet floral. Needs a day of air
So big and ripe, it will overpower almost anything you put on the grill. The finish goes on and on and on...but not in a manner that says 'pour me another.' It's a meal replacement and wine all wrapped up in one package. The bottle weighs a ton, and so does the wine.
Drank at Steak Pit for bday dinner. Decanted. Very smooth, supple mouthfeel and well structured body. Outstanding portfolio of favors and scents - not at all overwhelming or in your face but big, full, and engaging. Great with a rib eye!
