If tasting blind, I would have called this maybe a 2013-2015 vintage. Even after being open two hours, this was tight and unyielding. Very dusty aromatics (baked black cherries, charcoal, and dark cocoa) and chewy on the palate (underripe blackberries, baking spices, cedar). Big structure and it has everything you want for it to unfurl 7-10yrs from now. Hold.

Super hot and really tannic. Cherry fruit. Great alone. Excited to see what the future holds for this one

Strong, but friendly.
Tobacco, spice, and everything nice. Beautiful, if you are adventurous. Surely, an energizing experience.

Espresso, leather and cedar on the nose. Violet, mocha on palate. Remarkable wine!
