This is why we age/cellar wines. Beautiful! Lush. Great fruit! Zero tannins. Perfect

After dinner wine. One hour plus in the the decanter.

On the nose, sweet, bright, floral fruits of, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, purple fruits, black plum, creamed mixed berries, a dark fruit liqueur presence, loads of baking spices; cinnamon, clove, nutmeg & vanilla bean. Caramel, some black licorice, dark spices, volcanic minerals, crushed dry rocks, saddle-wood, some dry herbs and amazing dark, fresh floral bouquet.

The body is round and full. Tannins still quite firm...tarry like. The structure, tension, length & balance is beginning to take excellent form. The fruits are ripe, lush, brightly, dark floral & ruby. Bright, floral fruits of, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, purple fruits, black plum, strawberries, creamed mixed berries, a dark fruit liqueur presence, mixed berry liqueur cola, loads of baking spices; cinnamon, clove, nutmeg & strong vanilla. Caramel, milk & dark chocolate, some black licorice, dark spices, volcanic minerals, crushed dry rocks, saddle-wood, some dry herbs and amazing dark, fresh floral bouquet. The acidity is round and nicely done. The long, ruby, ripe, lush, elegant finish is a really excellent. It last 5 minutes.

Only a slight fault, a little heat in the alcohol that fades the more it opens up on the long decant. This wine is still youthful & will last another 10 years properly stored.

Went perfect with the home made Beef Wellington. This was a 1.5 and we decanted for an hour. It was perfect.

Garnet color with black cherry and spice toasted oak aromas. On the palate it's medium bodied, and smooth esp. w/some time in the glass, with fresh cherry mocha dark chocolate and vanilla flavors. Long finish

Lots of chocolate, plums, and a bit of raisin. Not a lot of structure.

This was one of our ANV 2010 "wins." 2008 Proprietary Red. It is singing now. Jean Hoefliger - you should be very proud of this one. Pop and pour, beautiful from start to finish.
