She's an elegant beauty. My Declectable pal Paul T would have a very hard time not drinking this wine ASAP and I wouldn't blame him on this one. However, this wine will do the happy dance on your palate in 10-15. This wine is so soft already. Ruby creamy fruits. Ripe blackberries, black plum, dark cherries, black raspberries, raspberries, beautiful 1/2 sweet minerals & rich dark earth, swede leather, slightly sweet expresso, black tea, creamy liquid violets and a finish that is just the way you want it and won't forget.

Whoa.
So substantive, but subtle and well integrated. It’s not a fruit bomb or vanilla monster. Austere. The iron fist / velvet glove analogy fits well.
The nose has more fruit than palate. Chocolate cherries and floral. Palate is tar, cherry cordial, chocolate, with sticky tannins throughout, so good
Wish I had more time to put to capturing everything going on here. Also wish I’d have purchased the case instead of 1 bottle.
