Narun P

Mainly Merlot supported by Cabernet Sauvignon

Garnet, opaque core with early widened rim.

Aromas of red cherry, blackberry, graphite, mushroom, forest floor, wet dirt, violet.

Still tannic, med plus acidity, med bodied. Red fruits, dried plum, wild ripe strawberry. Good evolution showing secondary characters of smoke, pencil lead, cattle range, earth. Finish nicely on cedary wood, baking spices, and red currant.

This wine requires at least an hour of air to uncoil. Keep improving in the glass. Peaking right about now with the structure to hold for 2-3 more years, though no reason to wait whatsoever. 90.
