Powerful aromas of black olives and dark chocolate jump out of the glass with subtler notes of salted caramel and bacon grease - little to no fruit on the nose, but I was in the mood for that kind of flavor profile. Creamy M+ body with grippy drying tannins, and medium acid. Some stewed black fruits shows up on the mid palate & finish but plays a minor role overall. Best vintage of this wine I have had to date, and a great value to be sure.

One of my all-time favorite wines but nearly impossible to find for reasons passing understanding. Have not had in several years. A notch below but still fabulous. Lots of lush, ripe blackberry fruit with leather and bacon fat. Supportive but silky tannins add interest to this well-structured wine. One to always have on hand if you can find it, but you have to want this.
