Really nice. Bold and spicy with a wild iron streak

Violets, slightly gamey, black fruit nose. Big bold tannins and a rich mouthfeel that hints at the oak. Blackberry, violet, floral finish on the front but a little vanilla as the fruit fades.

Needs to breathe quite a bit before the more subtle notes come out. Red currant, charcoal, bitter cherry. Comes on a little acidic, finishes off smoother. Probably even better in a couple of years.

Enjoyable, very dry. Far far better with food. Lost of spice which is subdued by beef!

Dark red berry flavor, paired with hearty winter food. Some tannins make it dry, but flavorful.
