Couldn’t wait to break open from the cellar a few years early. Color - dark purple and red hues. Blueberry cherry, perfume and a stewed meat funk burst on the nose lingering with scents of leather, mint and chocolate. A big bold and smooth taste leaving a strong impression and wanting more. As it sits on the pallet the rich and creamy flavors come forward tasting of black cherry and chocolate-vanilla. A long finish of tar, hints of grapefruit, cinnamon and tannins still very much present. A beautiful wine that could age another 10 year, but will definitely try again in a few years!

+3 hour decant. An intimidating inky dark purple color. Served just above cellar temp. On the nose: perfumed with blueberry/cherry, meaty with a little funk, soil, pencil lead, leather all burst from the glass. Taste: Buckle Up......Big, pure, rich, creamy wine with black cherry, milk chocolate, tar, crushed rock, cinnamon and a grapefruit leather dry long finish. Tannins not fully resolved....had to pop one bottle young and will wait a few years for the next bottle....still, really enjoying the ride tonight!
