Raspberry, black cherry, roses, cola, herbs. Full bodied, rich and intense. Almost jammy. Somewhat sweetish in the mouth; velvety and smooth. Excellent balance. A long velvety finish. Pairs well with Atlantic salmon, but this wine is more appreciated by itself. Glad I have some more!
This one improved after being open for a little over an hour, it would've been better to decant. When first opened one gets the sense of cherry cola, but the cola dies down and write fruit with higher levels of terroir and loam develop. This one will continue to age well.
This to me is the archetypical war one. Lots of terroir, A good amount of fruit, and some herbaceousness. I find the nose to be delightful, and the body to be light at the beginning with red fruit that rolls into layers and layers of flavor and the finish of soft, supple tannins that linger becoming more austere with time.
For once I agree with the cellar tracker drink dates. I wouldn't look for this to improve with age after 2016.
