Still bright and showing some cassis, blackberry, dried herbs and graphite. This is aging very well.

Firm but still velvety tannins with hint of vanilla, lovely notes of black cherries, blackberry, cocoa and cassis

Showing incredibly well. Perfect secondary development. Tannins are a bit dry but doesn't subtract from the easy drinking elegance. @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple TX

Decanted and served about 30 min later. The aromas are so pure cherry tobacco and follow through w perfect balance of sale in the palate. This is why we all collect wine! Though still young the wow factor and generosity of now make this a cork popper!

Needed some air. With an hour decant this wine showed gorgeous layers. Rich cassis, black pepper and black cherry. An inkiness and loads of new barrel smells. A touch of mint intermingled on the nose and mid palate. Very, very good wine for the price. Great acid and a generous finish to say the least.
