This is the 13 Tyson. One the nose, a touch of funkiness, tarry notes, dark currants, blackberries, black plum, black raspberries, sweet liqueur dark cherries and fresh dark florals. The body is full with fine M+ tannins. Sweet dark currents, tarry notes, anise, blackberries, black plum, black raspberries, sweet liqueur dark cherries, violets, lavender, understated round acidity with a rich, round finish that drys on the long set.

Gentle nose of blackberry, creme de cassis, incense, warm spices, and the seductive hint of forest floor/wild fungus. Harmonious palate: full and unctuous, yet weightless. Acidity is as good as it gets. Supple silky tannins.
This bottle exceeds my high expectation. Love the simple yet elegant label too.
