I feel as if this would be amazing if not following the Rayas. Great nose but pretty wound up and tight still. Didn't open up much after being in glass an hour. Need to revisit.

Beautiful nose. Perfume. Complexity. American oak on the palate. Well integrated but would love to see in a few years

Prune and cherry and slightly floral on the nose Well balanced and well rounded. Good mouth feel. Very long finish. Excellent. Drinking well. WIne Spectator says no time left on it - I think will be good for a few more years at least.
