This can potentially be a great wine, but not for now. It's so closed and tight that it's undrinkable at this moment, even after couple of hours decanting.
It might need from 3-5 years before one can even think about drinking it.

Intense powerful ripe fruit on the nose. very strong dark chocolate and mocha on the mouth with very good fruit and well balanced tanins. Still kicking and will last for a few more years. Impressive.

Big, bold and sweet. Beautiful wine with taste of honey and lots of sweet ripe fruit (peach and apricots and apple) with just enough acidity to hold everything together in a tight beautiful finish.
Still very young and it should develop beautifully for the next years.

Unbelievable wine!Made with 40 different grape variaties and from vines oves one hundred years old, I decanted this wine for seven hours before drinking it and was I impressed! It's a massive wine full of power and flavors. Dried ripe grapes, plums and cherries, dark chocolate.
Everything was very smooth and so balanced it was a pleasure drinking it.
Only 2000 bottles produced.

Very nice surprise. Wasn't expecting much of it. It was decanted for about 3 hours before I tried it. Very, very dark color, almost opaque with lot's of fruit and good tanins but not overpowering. Very long and mouthwatering finish, surprising because I had this wine during a tasting with some other big fruity wines and this one managed to hold it's own.
Ripe plum, rasins a little licorice with a dash of silky dark chocolate. I think it will last for another 2-3 years.
Yummy!!!

Big, big wine!!!
It's always a pleasure to crack up a bottle of this wine. The wine has come a long way since I first tried it when it was released. It's well balanced, the fruit has mellowed out a bit, and other flavors are starting to appear. There's still plenty of ripe fruit to make your mouth water, dark chocolate, spices and some earthiness... yummy!
The tanins still need a few more years to soften and blend into this beautiful wine. Can't wait to try another bottle in a few months time.
Cheers!
