Effortless, elegant feel. Very balanced, relatively light on its feet with striking floral and balsamic notes. Forceful on the entry with broad mouthfeel and nervy mineral streak. Juicy wild berry fruit coating every fiber of the palate with ripe tannins.

Somewhat past it's prime at this early age. Fruit was too subtle and the main event was underwhelming. Sorry to report.

Concentrated and grippy with, fig/port fruit, chestnut, singed wood and tobacco. Could knit together better with age. I would rather drink a tawny port for now.

Always love the layers and energetic burst these wines show on the palate. Juxtapositions of ripe, cooked, and dried fruits bounce around with crushed stones, wood spice, savory herbs, and coffee tones. Alcohol a touch intrusive while the tannins give some edge.

An outstanding bottle of wine. Fruit shows nicely, rich tannins, and very nice finish.
