Black fruit: currant, cassis, blackberry, plum, with dense, unctuous, almost resinous-like texture. This is bold, potent and crammed with sweet earth, allspice and smoked red bell peppers.

Tons of fruit - really gaining depth with air - restrained tobacco and cocoa notes - lower acidity than I imagined - pleasure to drink now

Napa-like nose, but old world on the palate. Big but not without grace.

Beautiful, slight animality in the nose, quite dark in colour and nice fruit. Mouthfilling and gentle with long aftertaste. I love this !!!

A dry one on the palate - and a medium finish - but not well balanced. Forward to to mid palate is well represented but doesn't finish as well as would have hoped for - Wine spectator a bit off on this one I am afraid. Will hold remaking bottles and hope that time rounds it out.
