What a beauty. Slightly reticent to start (still pretty young) but opened up nicely. Herbal red fruits with a beautiful liquorice edge. Svelte and seductive tannins. Classy. Individual. Assured.

This is a sexy, massive wine. Decanted over candle light....the color is like a dark shade of ruby red - the wives are calling it Dorothy’s ruby red shoes in a glass!! Massive fruit. Earth, some cedar and faint hints of green pepper. The finish on this last so long. Just crazy good.

Closed and tannic. Obviously give it years. Interesting 09.
