What a beautiful wine. Sweet red fruit with a little funk on the nose. Beautiful choreographed dance between cedar wood, white pepper, red fruit and maybe a little orange zest(?) lead to a subtle beautiful sweet finish that lingers for a solid minute. Need more of this in my life. What a wine. Served with lacquered duck￼ — 8 hours ago

[Night 1:] On the lower-toned end of the flavor spectrum. Dark, smoky, leathery notes take the lead on the nose, with some very dark cherry verging into blackberry fruit in the background. Loads of warm sandstone. Tannic, dark, and large-framed in the mouth. Maybe a tad scorchy. Not my style (I like ‘em with more cherry fruit and freshness). Others may like this more.
UPDATE: Night 2 this is much nicer. Dark cherry liqueur fruit has moved to the fore, and the tannins are not nearly as prominent. Amazingly, I’m upping this from 8.8 to 9.1. Obviously the moral of the story is to give this guy plenty of air. — 6 months ago
Mehhh. Not much structure and the finish left me wanting more. I had heard good things about the 2010 but was disappointed and not understanding the love for it. — 6 months ago
