Deep, dark, ruby barely allowing light to penetrate the glass. Evidently full-bodied by its looks. Waning red fruit on the nose, giving way to dried flowers, fresh tobacco, and some brush. On the palate, cranberry, red currants, baking spices, perfumed by the floral notes. Alcohol seems higher that the reported 13.5. Acidity is perfect here at medium. Tannins also quite right. Very long pleasing finish. This is excellent, drink or hold.

Bellissimo! This blew the doors off: inky w/gorgeous aromas of foresty woodland berries, darker fruit, spice, pepper, lavender & garrigue… intriguing beguiling. Med to lighter weight but wore it well with lip-smacking dark berries and warm spices on palate. Finish was a bit disjointed but I’d like to revisit in a year or 2. Bump for QPR — a month ago
Good BDX, but somewhat uneventful considering the 15 vintage was so awesome. — a month ago
Amazing with sushi omakase. Ethereal and funky fruity in the best possible way — 2 months ago
