Another bottle of this after 1st taste 5 years ago. Color of deep ruby, purple, and a bit burgundy, clear. Nose of concentrated aldehyde, dried strawberry, plum, oak, and menthol. Simply beautiful. Taste is amazing, sophisticated sweetness, oak, spice from alcohol, tobacco leaves, sugar plum, dried strawberry, zest note, a touch of mineral, and refined solid tannins. Silky and tasty. Aftertaste is long with silky finish, rind zest, oak, and some more sweetness. A treat.

Boysenberry compote with notes of licorice on the nose. The palate is filled with luscious dark fruits and baking spices. Superb!

Very fruit forward. Opened up nicely after about an hour. Good job for a 2011. Will be interesting to see how this evolves over the next couple of years.

Too fruit forward for my taste - no dirt balance. Sitting​ on rest for 3-5 years minimum to see where they go...
