Saturday, June 8, 2019 - Prior bottle was to the day 14 months ago and this wine continues to show extremely well. Mostly black cherry on the nose with red cherry hints behind along with leather, tar and spices. Medium bodied with black cherry upfront, blending in some red cherry notes that allow the wine to come off as rounded and beautifully integrated. Mid body retains excellent depth, especially towards the backside. There's black raspberry and plum notes and then tart cherry (mix of red and black). Minerals notes, leather, tar and spices on the finish. There's still enough tannin here to provide very good structure and some dryness for contrast with the fruit. Over the course of four hours, got better and better. Based on how well the fruit showed as well as where the structure is today, this wine should be able to continue to hold this level for at least another 18-24 months. This is peak, but give it at least two hours open to show it's best. This was my final bottle (for now), but given how well it showed, I would buy more if it becomes a possibility.
