Redemption bottle for the last one that was weirdly off. Dark cherry red with a dark ruby rim. Super dark fruits on the nose: blackberry, blueberry, blue plum, cocoa powder, light sandalwood, eucalyptus and a hint of black licorice. First impression on the palate is medium weight with brisk acidity and crisp black fruit. Quite tight with astringent tannins that are nevertheless fine grained. Good dark fruits as well on the palate. Definitely needs a few more years to mellow out. 92 points right now.

Coravined 2 glasses and it was a 92. Repeated next day by finishing the bottle and it was an 88. Split it even. The drop was an unusual drop in power. It was like the body fell apart. For the $125 I paid, I would say not worth it. You can buy better bdx at half the price with equal age.
