A beauty with a view. This sure was an excellent sipper. Super dark extraction and a fruity smoky interplay on the pallet. Red berry nose. Fun to explore for a couple hours in the glass.

Ba bam!!!! What is this wine!? Blast off... Never tried it before. Big, bold, not raisin tho; forgiving acidity (thank god) black berry, tar, fig, plum... And it's '05... Jury still out; I'm thinking...

Good but a little disjointed. Just something not harmonious about it.

Dense and rich and a bit spicy. Truffles, dark cherries, and cassis. Long, satisfying finish. So sorry this is my last bottle.
