This is drinking beautifully. Lots of satiny dark red and purple fruit with a long silky finish. No evidence of age just a great wine with lots of acid.

Dark cherries and a slight acetone start on the nose, with a little bit of damp wood undertones. This wine was a beautiful garnet red with slight bricking on the edges. Palate was coated with cherries throughout and a little tomato. Also a little heat and noticeable acidity. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and moderate body, both very well integrated. Moderate finish that carried a little heat and cherries throughout. Very interesting wine. Not sure if acidity will dissipate with time or if this needs to be drunk asap. Drink till (hopeful thoughts) 2023.

Proof that wine can transcend everything when it comes down to an experience with the wine. This is in perfect shape and likely peaking right now. This is huge, silky and full on delicious. Shut off the analytical and just sit back and enjoy the yum factor. #2002

Took a bit to decant but great bold flavors without over-powering tannins.

Should have saved this for a special occasion. What a beautiful bottle! Extremely balanced and comforting.
