I Grendel'd this Beowulf of a wine so hard.

Just starting to show mature notes of forest floor and leather that peak out of a dominant Merlot wine of power, with red and black fruits that are concentrated, but shows all of it with grace. Medium grain tannins are a little dusty but smooth.

Rich cherry and plum pillowed by vanilla and smoky perfume. It's almost hedonistic on the nose but the structure is unmistakable on the palate! Juicy yet clearly defined.

More concentrated than the clos lunelles. Compact at this stage, not green but this is overwhelmed by tannin on the finish.

Purple to dark red in color, not showing much in the age department. The first 30 minutes the nose and palate was all savory with beef jerky, mint, and leather notes. After a 30 minute decant mulled spices, cassis, currants, and minerality appeared. Firm but ripe tannins made up part of the wonderful balance this wine had. This hardly drank like a 14 year old wine.
