Nose of plums and ripe red fruits. Hint of herbs, leather and tobacco. Flavors of dark cherry with vanilla and black pepper on the finish. Smooth tannins. Great wine!

Color of ruby with brown and yellow note on the rim. Nose of sweet oak and dried strawberries, a bit leather, a bit thyme and nice savory spice. Taste is quite dried with powerful tannins, nice oaky note, dried strawberries, aldehyde, a bit peppery, flavors are saturated. Aftertaste is medium long with sustaining tannins, zesty, and a bit more berry note. Nicely done.

Day 1 was promising with nice aromatics, ample fruit and earth, balanced with supple tannins. Day 2 is showing much less interestingly, much softer, and a bit flat. Feels a bit tired. I wouldn't hold these too long.
