Dark and intense. Dark black cherry fruit, very clear and precise. Young but great structure, balance and clarity. A good life ahead

Still austere. High tannins, great acidity. Cherry, cranberry, tar, rose and truffles. Absolutely in balance.

Day 1: Captivating nose, wet earth, savory cooking spices, a spice bazaar. Crazy nose. Chestnut as well. Library. So old school smelling but still clean. Very fresh. Elegant and lifting aromas. After a bit red florals start to develop. Initially palate is tannic and elegant. Very spicey, very fine pearly tannins. Big, but well structured and so elegant and fine. I am amazed how elegant and big this wine is. The fruit starts to come out and is detailed and impressive. Amazing fruit after a while. All deep morello cherries. Really impressive stuff. Such power and finesse.

Day 2: Nose is insane today. A spice bazaar, cherry, black cherry fruits, mint with the fruit much more prominent in the nose today. Big, dense and intense but with great purity and freshness but clearly could use 4-8 years in the cellar to mellow out. Silky fruit of wonderful vividness. Long lingering and nicely mineral finish with shades of different cherries.

Great but needs another 2 years. Spice chocolate. Dark fruits. Dark dark dark. Not hugely fruit though. Almost smoky and very dry. Lovely rose internal aromatics. Wow. Bought from Fass Selections. ... really elegant. Powerful but perfumey. An intense perfume. Still juicy. Great structure.

Got a sample from an enotek machine. It may have been in there too long.
