Drank it over three days and tasted the best on the third day. This wine is still very closed. Hints of savory notes and roses on the nose, with intense red fruit on the palate with some oak showing through. Needs some time.

Beautiful wine that should last for few more years. Drank it over three days and it improved each day. Nose of red fruits and earth. On the palates there are red fruit with notes of raspberries, cherries and cranberries. It finishes with notes of flowers and some fine tannins. I wish I had more.

Drank it over three days and it improved each day. Aromas of red fruit, spices and some savory notes. Complex on the palate with notes of pomegranate, raspberries, mushrooms, Indian spices and some rose petals. Long finish with grainy tannins and savory, spicy notes. Drinking well but should improve with near term aging.

Simple straight forward fruit bomb. There is some complexity with some interesting notes of mint and tobacco. Drinking well and may improve with couple of years of age.

One of the best wines I have had in a long time. Savory notes with some menthol and red fruit on the nose followed by beautiful red fruit notes on the palate that is followed by earth, spices, meat and mushroom notes. Nice silky texture and long finish makes it an outstanding wine. Drinking well now but should improve with some age.

This bottle is a little off. Not corked but seems disjointed. Nose is great with notes of roses and red fruit but on the palate there is lots of up front fruit and notes of spices but this doesn't seem to meld together.

Drank it over three days and tasted best on day one. On the first day the wine tasted young but notes of meats, and dark and red fruit dominated the palate. There were layers of red fruit flavors that dominated the finish which long and satisfying. On the third day the wine was tasting flaby and finish was dominated with alcohol notes. I am not sure if this is long term ager. Drink up.

Very aromatic nose of red and black fruit and flowers. On the palate there are layers of sweet red fruit, plums and blackberries. Finishes with notes of vanilla and cherries and a lot of alcohol. Would be better if the alcohol did not take over the wine at the finish.

Drank it over three days and drank best on the second day. Nose of earth and roasted pork. Cherries, strawberries, bacon, vanilla on the palate followed by notes of pomegranate and spices on the finish with little bit of medicinal note.
