Deep fruit. Plum and tobacco. Soft and rounded. Gorgeous velvety texture and really long. This is in great shape still.

A flat-out stunning nose. Plum, black cherry, a hint of menthol, pine needles, graphite, earth, very smooth and rounded on the palate. Harmonious. Cool and focused with iron and hints if tobacco. Still quite young but definitely at a sweet spot right now, and probably for much longer

From a nice old-looking bottle with a fill into the neck. Reddish tawny color. Bright fruit-forward nose. Notes of red fruit, spice, red flowers, mint and some moist forest earth. Great aromatics. Decent fruit remaining with nicely integrated tannins and great, balanced structure. This improved over the evening... quiet at first (despite 4+ hours of decanter time), but showed its stuff later on.

I know I committed infanticide but I wanted to share a special bottle with a favorite cousin who never has an opportunity to drink a wine like this . A powerful , and complex nose of blueberries, florals, and red fruit. On the palate the wine was constantly changing and continuously putting weight on. Deep and concentrated flavors of  plums, chocolate , tobacco and licorice that suppressed the wine’s tannic structure.

After 90 minutes in the decanter, 04 Unico really comes alive and shows itself to be in a great spot, continuing to improve over the course of the night. A complex and layered bouquet of warm baked fruit, oak spice, saddle leather, mocha and dark chocolate waft from the glass. It’s elegant and seductive while at the same time powerful and intense. An incredible balance between the two. It expands on the palate with the silkiest of textures, soft tannins and a finish that goes on and on. A fantastic bottle with a stellar future.
