Black current, black cherry, plum, leather, gingerbread. Shoe polish @Matt Wilson definitely there now. Even more interesting on the palate. It's dry but kind of like somebody sprinkled it with sugar, just enough to draw out the fruitiness. The tannins are high and so is the acidity and the finish takes it's time. This wine knows what's it got and is flaunting the shit out of it.

Stunning. Punching well above its weight. Step right up, take a swirl, find a new aroma. Blackberries, cherries, plums and currants. Oregano, leather, shoe polish and cinnamon. Acidity? Check!, Tannin? Check! A baby at 4 years. Going to get another bottle or 2.. I'll see you guys in 10 to 15 years.... wow

Ripe maroon fruits, baking spice, some leather and pipe tobacco, and mostly resolved tannins. Feels like a Pessac-Leognan from a warm vintage.

cassis, black cherry & plum ~ herbs, tobacco, leather & a touch of baking spices ~ simultaneously is soft from tannins yet has acidity with salinity ~ you want to take your time enjoying this one!

Rich and ripe, but not overdone. Lovely texture and well structured. Exactly what you'd expect from COS!!

Showing a bit old for '07 but quite solid at the moment.
