Dark red purple in color. Blue-blackberry, pepper and minerally on the nose-currants linger. Aroma of vanilla and spice fills the nose as dark fruit and chocolate delightfully warm up on the taste buds; finishes with some graphite and earthy flavors. tannins ready to drink. Thought I slid the the bar to 9 but saw 8 on my initial review. Sorry for the mistake.

Double decant and pour(minimal cloudy sediment). A magical murky reddish/purple color. On the nose: blackberry, currents, floral, minerals, earthy. Taste: graphite, black fruit, crushed rocks, pepper, chocolate with a rich medium finish....tannins fully integrated...seems to be about or at its peak..don't wait, pop one if you have em!!

Decant 1 hour (some fine sediment). Dark ruby red color. On the nose: black fruit, cassis, floral, minerals. Taste: blackberry, vanilla, pencil lead, spice. Tannins still there and starting to sweeten....going to wait a year or two on remaining bottles. Yum
