Decanting now...

A random purchase from a semi-defunct wine shop (I believe he's been trying to close for 2 years now... But no buyer's), never heard of this bottle before.
13.5% Alcohol and it may impair your ability to operate machinery, according to the back label, other than that, it's a blank book for me, so notes forthcoming...

If anyone has had this, post up a comment. Thanks.

On the nose we have black cherry, green pepper and black pepper.
On the palate, currently lacking concentration but continuing to improve, black currant, black pepper, tobacco and voilet.
Amazingly this wine paired quite nicely with the grilled asparagus accompanying our flap steak with a fresh chimichurri made from foraged ramps (wild leeks), a local delicacy for only a few weeks in the Berkshires.

Full body cab at a reasonable price. Great to have with FL team at a great restaurant.

Bold notes come off the nose. Strong woody notes on the palate. Light fruit smooth and very soft finish.

Recommend decanting for 60 minutes. Jammy raisin and cedar bouquet. Rich blackberry and slight white pepper flavors, finishing a bit chalky.
