Big wine. Dark purple fruits, a lot of acid and oak, but good oak, and even better fruit. I think that 10 years down the road and this wine will be in a great place...

Beautiful... Decanted 4 hours prior to dinner, dark color, still alot of oak and tannins, but plenty of fruit and a long finish. I will probably wait another 3-4 years before opening another.

Quiet on the nose, this had a short, mean taste and I was unable to finish a glass and ended up throwing it out. It didn't taste corked but, given the consistent positive reviews it gets, I wonder if it was spoiled in another way that I didnt recognize?
