Huge smoke and ash on the nose. Wow. Campfire, dark cherry, some cigar box. Very very cool. As it opens up, a lot of lighter strawberry and red cherry on the nose. On the palate, deep dark cherry, tobacco, leather, smoked wood, stewed fig. Just unreal, very cool wine. Medium low tannin, but super super long and stays for days.

2010v. Deep dark cherry, savory herb (esp on the palette), and cigar box. Tons of acid- I paired it with lasagna. Still plenty of tannins; could age for a couple more years if desired. 14% ABV.

Smells fruity and sweet, a little bit pleasantly musky. First reaction was very sweet, but Charles says actually it's just really fruity. Fruity taste fades to more complex savory taste at the middle/end. Fine tannins, a good amount of sharpness at the back of the throat when I swallow, but doesn't last. Had with octopus avocado red sauce pasta. Good for drinking on own

A wonderfully nuanced, graceful wine that is medium to light bodied but has a terrific intensity and long finish. The wine paired beautifully with the full gamut of pastas from this perennially hip Japanese-Italian, Chelsea establishment.

Please see my previous rating on this. I still found the blunt chocolate cherries. It didn't feel quite as spherical this time around. Tannins a bit more grippy. I gave it 2 hours. Still supreme.

Good but not as full as others. Won't age much longer. Some cranberry and raisin
