2012: good fragrance, dark plums and cherries, violets, lavender and spices. Quite a big beast on the palate, full, tannic, super extracted. Very modern and intense. Needs 3-4 years

Elegant and smooth. Drinking very well right now. Pnp. BlackBerry, plum, and touches of charcoal and eucalyptus. Excellent!

Opaque blue/purple color, notes of tobacco, blueberry, black cherry, cacao, pencil lead, smooth and firm tannin, elegant silky finish, extremely balanced with a long lingering finish.
