Recently tried ‘14. Dark red with aromas of black and red fruits with smoky spice. On the palate veey sweet cherry, blackberry with dried currant flavors, adding cacao and smoky spices. Fine tannins a bit acidic on a medium finish ending with earthy tones. Pricey, thought ‘14 was a bit better, but still pricey.

3rd wine from the Wine dinner. Opens to a smokey nose with robust plum and licorice. Big wine with a nice finish. More age would do this justice.

Very tannic on the nose, but balanced with juicy dark red fruits on the palate. Quite robust but still smooth. Delicious!!!

A: clear deep garnet
N: aromatic, some age, fruity aromas; plum, peach, grape
P: syrupy but not overtly sweet (dry to off-dry?), light bodied, fresh, low soft tannins, powerful, simple flavors of multiple types, good balance, long finish; berries (black cherry, raspberry), licorice, oak.
O: outstanding flavorful light wine

I wish the later vintages(2012-2013) were as good. They're not.

Great very full bodied wine. Just a ton of fruit flavours. Great way to kick off a dinner party.
