The wine is clear and bright with a deep garnet colour and presence of dense legs. The nose is clean and developing, showing medium+ intensity aromas of dark cherries, dark plums, anise, vanilla, cedar, tobacco and cinnamon. The wine is dry in the mouth with a medium+ acidity. It has high soft silky tannins and a medium+ alcohol. It has a full body and medium+ intensity flavours of dark plums, dark cherries, anise, cedar, vanilla and cinnamon. The finish is medium+.
It is an outstanding quality wine with a great complexity provided by well-integrated oak aromas, it has a very good fruit concnetration and finish, it shows typicity and it has a very good overall balance. Can drink now, but it has enough tannic structure and fruit concentration to develop even more complexity and tertiary aromas over the next 4-6 years.
PnP w/3 hour decant. Slight haze, deep dark purple color. Med proper Claret nose. Wine showed very nice at this stage in time. Fully balanced/integrated, med body, good drinking window but has a few years yet. Nothing off. $26.
Fully mature, with a smoke, coffee, black cherry, earth and fennel nose, the wine is soft, round and very easy to drink. This is not going to make old bones. I'd opt for drinking the wine over the next 5 years.
