Shows well for the vintage. Tar, earth and lean red fruit. Note of smoky tobacco and a smooth tannic finish.

Birthday wine, part one. Showing well and the structure is much more subtle...in a very good spot. Rose petal and tar.

Really killer. Depth and darkness. Texture and funky fruit. Savory and earthy. Kept evolving as the night wore on. Truly remarkable.
