2014 opened Feb 2018. Still very young. Decant for an hour. Tobacco, cocoa, and earth tones on the nose. Maybe just a hint of eucalyptus, but it's not repulsive in the least. Unripe cherries on the front of the pallet create a bit of pucker initially. Smooth tannic structure at the top of the palate. It has a nice bright finish. This is a powerful wine. Realistically, you need to put it down for a decade, though, to mellow out its raw edges. But I personally would prefer it in its young state. I like wines that are complex and challenge me.
