A bit old. But elegant. Grippy.

The wine was in much better condition than the label! Kept in a damp but reliable cellar. Saying that, it was perhaps a little more muted than expected. Left for a good while but didn’t really open up more in the glass. Still, it was a pleasure to drink.

Dark scarlet to the rims, almost opaque. Masculine, meaty nose. Notes of smoked meats, tart raspberries, herbs, wet soil, blueberries and some white pepper. Big and rich in the mouth. Youthful and plummy. Has some heat. Tannins mostly resolved. Puckering acidity and structure kinda overwhelms the fruit.

Opened two bottles, both were in great shape. Manageable Brett, slight bottle variation, one seemed to be more concentrated than the other. Fun stuff, corks were in great shape. These aren’t getting better.

Reddish amber, clear, bright and mostly translucent. Great nose with notes of cranberry, dried herbs, plum, white pepper and a little smoke. In the mouth this is instantly open for business. Silky and smooth. Lovely fruit, balanced with wonderful structure and energy. Long lasting finish. This wine continues to perform, with no sign of decline on the horizon.
