Delicious. Just starting to open, big black fruit, leather, oak, tannins are integrated but assertive.

Dark cherry leather chocolate. Concentrated. Aggressive tannins with good acidity. Needs more time. Would like to try again in 5 years

Lovely and deep. Bold fruit aromas once it opens, loads of flavor, dark fruits, spices, integrated tannins with a very long finish. Excellent.
