  • Just starting to get secondary notes and still good fruit to it. I would drink now with a little decant or another few years if properly stored.

  • Have several more and let me start by saying this wine is in a good place and easily has years left if stored properly. finally had some time away from kids and dog-and cellar roulette yielded this consumed with time to think. no food for distraction :)
    Cellared since release at 55deg. Poured without aeration. Zalto stemware.
    Dark ruby with garnet rim mild sediment.
    Nose of fruit compote with strawberries, rosepetals with nuances of pencil shavings and faint eucalyptus. lovely.
    Flavors of delicious red and dark fruits with a delicious glycerine mouthfeel and literally mouthwatering and mouthcoating tannins.
    for me this is an ideal tannic structure and bodes well for continued propper cellaring.

  • Same experience as our previous bottle from 2014, but this time, only 45 minutes in a decanter to get there, vs a few hours. For those of you with more patience than me, and more than one bottle, now is probably the time to at least check in on it.

    Tasted non blind. Opened and decanted before serving.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of dark cocoa powder, melted black licorice, spice box and plum. Flavors of black currants, plums and black cherries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink now with air or continue to hold.
