This has developed nicely. Still full on flavor-town but has shed some of the clumsy fruit.

Delicious fruit forward with bright berries and cola flavors and a great finish. Always a favorite.

Forgotten bottle in the cellar. Drinking good for its age and big style. Loads of oak, drink now. Paired with meat sauce pasta and garlic bread.

Still shedding a lot of oak, but a beautiful wine for Christmas Eve with Dad.
