Decanted for a few hours before checking in. Purple reddish color. Earthy nose. Notes of black currants, crushed granite, blueberries, some funk, some menthol and some dark soil. What it has in the nose is missing in the mouth…. Not as good as the last bottle… not very exciting nor impactful. Today it’s all about the nose.

Dark scarlet color, almost opaque. Meaty, hearty nose. Notes of black cherry, pepper and spice, smoked meats, slate stone and a little kirsch. Great balance in the mouth. Lasting finish. Good showing.

Translucent ruby. Great nose with black cherry, violets, gravel stone, dirt, cola and a little menthol. Very balanced texture in the mouth. Smooth and herbal in a good way. Tannins nicely integrated. Great now but no need to hurry and drink these.
