Second Vintage for this. It was a bit perplexing as the gorgeous fruit of 2013 was blocked off by a stop sign of green. I was shocked really. It does blow off after time, thankfully. Definitely not a wine to drink anytime soon.

Earthy and very little tannins. Still could age 2-3 more years but it’s extremely good. Great on the nose (lots of cedar). At first it’s a bit fruity but the finish is deep and really good. You’ll need a big steak with this one.

Interesting. Not a bad thing. Decanted for 2 hours, the nose is pure cedar box it is crazy. The oak is a little strong but it's young and not fruit forward, made in a more Bordeaux style. Tobacco , earth, cedar. Everyone likes it but needs time.
