Smoky, bacon, rubbery, plum and ash, tobacco and licorice. Very integrated fruits and aromas. Very rich, intense mouth. Light tannins.

Bacon fat, smoked, black olive salt, bittersweet fruit and pepper of first press olive oil. Luscious and meaty, in the zone with lamb rack and elk. Smokin, tad of blue fruit. Tad reductive, but hey, it's a good romp. Who buys these wines anymore though?

Delicious.. Dense, concentrated. Initially only fruit, with some time started to show nice meaty irony tones. Long and extracted
