Gorgeous blackberry, dark berries, plum, spices, integrated smooth tannins. Light earthiness. Lengthy pleasing finish. This has it all.

3L - Excellent bottle, took some time to open but was generous when it did. Concentrated over ripe fruits with acidity and mouth coating silkiness.

Beautiful nose. All that was lacking is in mouthfeel and palate presence. Great wine, dumb criticism.

Still drinking well. Elegant and fairly restrained even after being decanted for 2 hour hours. WS rated it 98 and as is usually the case with such highly rated wines, I am a bit disappointed.
