Holding up well, black fruit abounding, fresh. Did I mention black fruit. Finishes with notes of Alicante, crushed herb and petite tannins. Soft and supple till the end. Towards the end of the night the Etoh started to creep up, probably due to temperature.

Nearly opaque dark ruby color with kirsh, baked blueberry and blackberries, vanilla and a bit of eucalyptus, and leather aromas. On the palate it's big, broad and hedonistic with good acidity and a very supple texture it shows bright baked blueberry, vanilla, baked cherry flavors. Long finish! Damned tasty!

Upon release, this wasn't my favorite wine. I found it big, flabby and to sweet, but now ... It's fully matured, integrated and drinking incredibly well. Black fruits with terroir and seem less tannins that continue to unfold in the glass. Don't wait drink it now!
