If I had a complaint, it would be that it was a little bit hot. Otherwise, fantastic.

Benefited from time in bottle and quick decant. Strong nose of blackberries and faint spice. Dripping with black fruit flavors with a hint of peppers and earthiness. Well balanced.

Was expecting to be wowed by those 100+ year old vines... first impression was "one dimension and anise, or fennel, at that"
