Smoking nose. Leather, tar, tobacco, cherry, so elegant and fine. Mesquite bbq. So old school and expressive. Loads of dirt. Each. Palate has just amazing fruit and density. Such energy and purity. So juicy and so alive. Such a mineral core and lovely, lively amazingly clear fruit.

Nose is foresty, spicey, dark cherry, floor of a winter forest, so juicy and complex with wonderful ripe tannins. Stunningly pure and long. With great freshness. What a showing. Wonderful even on day 2 where it gets even fresher and deeper. Lovely hint of mushrooms in the finish.

I opened this before I went to work and just put it on a shelf. Came home and drank it with dinner. Super precise aromas, very as if crystallized. Dried cherries, leather, tar, roses, dried roses, menthol, some licorice...really resolved tannins. Acid is still good. Intense perfume. Very good with a mushroom risotto and some bloomy rind cheese. Wish I had some more. Thanks @Lyle Fass

Really gorgeous, minus the hint of TCA.

Blackberry, light oak, vanilla, rose and some earth on the nose. Silky tannins, but still there, floral, tart cranberry. Almost drinks like a Pinot. Pretty tasty. Solid price point too. Not gonna knock your socks off, but damn drinkable and good.
