It’s a mess.. with potential. Burly, Broad shouldered and brambly. I bet this was great fun in 2013, where it probably got its high points, but now, despite a 3 hour double decant, in awkward transition. Neither charming nor poetic, this is a street fighter looking for a fight. Quite un-Cos. Will hold on to my others hoping for a transformation in 5-10, which is quite on the cards.

When I was 12 years old I was a little league prodigy - problem is that I didn't continue to get better with age. I peaked at age 12. I wonder if this wine could suffer the same fate. It is drinking so well now and at such a young age. Smooth, dark fruits, long finish and such great balance. Not sure this is one to lay down for too long though since it already is such a good spot. Like my baseball skills, it may not continue to evolve into a major league wine. But it is oh so good now!

The wine has low acidity. It smells like black currant (cassis). The wine finishes short. The wine looks garnet colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. The wine has smooth texture.
