Interesting from last notes. Smooth, lush, and voluptuous with cherry pie and Christmas spice notes. Day 2 was a bit raisiny but still enjoyable and smooth as silk.

Another Killer Wine Night! Theme: awesome. Tasted blind as always.
#KWN Wine 1. Blackberry fruit, with a lot of smoke and BBQ charcoal flavors. Last had 2 years ago; drank young but was fine. This drank hot. Very hot. This improved substantially as the night went on and had been opened for 60-90 min. It is still way too young and can go 10 years without breaking a sweat. But I don't think this bottle is transitioning. I still think there was a bottle issue, especially considering my last tasting notes. I left early so interested to see what my counterparts say after it aired for another hour.

Massive mint and stewed plum and earth on the nose. Pipe tobacco and grilled meat and flur de sel notes dominate the back palette with a long and smoky finish. Fat tannins. Still young.

Blackberry and plum, coupled with pepper and roasted game. A long, graphite filled, velvety finish. This caresses the palate, but is massive. Has a long life ahead.

Took 2+ hrs to come out and play but a sweet, soft core is surrounded by a beautiful structure of tannins and nuanced fruit. Soul has a French passport.
