Lovely and forward, rich and structured. Complex nose with dark fruits, some minerality and incense gives way to a slightly hot (ie alcoholic) palate full of blue fruit, spice and a little green pepper. Note that this does not mean the wine tastes "green" like a 2004 might. If I had to pick nits, the alcohol is maybe a little too prominent, but to be honest I don't mind that. 35-40 second finish. Yum... I like it!
Opened and left alone for 1 hour. Did not decant. Wine kept improving as time went by. Beautiful colour with enough / plenty of age at the brink. Nice evolved nose, fruity and fresh. Tannins well integrated. Decent length and just a pleasure to drink. Ready now.
Decanted an hour, it was nice to have this with a proper amount of air. Still plenty of life left, but the dark blue fruit and balanced finish, showing a touch of tannin and acid, have this in a great spot right now. Great with food. A-
Hard to imagine this is getting any better. I would drink any time now. Bright red with just a touch of brick on the rim. Sweet dark red fruit with leather and mineral notes. Ripe fine tannins almost completely resolved; decent acidity. Long silky finish.
