Notes from day 2.
N strong nose with merlot shines mostly here with fragrant cherry, raspberry, forest, dark bakers chocolate
P similar on the pallet with red raspberries, rainer cherry, tobacco, earth, spice
F long in length, good mouthfeel and tannin
Really nice wine by Jim, but this seems like its showing so well now that I wonder how this will age compared to normal vintages as they usually are the best in a few years of cellar time.

The nose was really nice with strong tropical fruit, honey, tea, little shells.
Palate had lots of honey, citrus, cream, nuts, and some tea with some minerals.
The finish was long and there was really great acidity for a wine of this age.
Very nice bottle of wine.

Remember the nose being the most interesting part of the wine.
The palate felt like a it had components of minerals yet felt kind of flabby but not full. Like an awkward mix that left me wanting more zip or more fullness .
Might need more time.
