The nose is not overwhelming, rather its soft but complex. Chocolate. Blackberry. Prune. The first sip is almost perfect. On the palate it's silk. Even this young. The fruit and the tannins are so well balanced. The finish is prolonged and elegant, with the right amount of heat at the end. This is a gorgeous wine.

Nice flavor of blackberries, peppery finish.

Barrel tannins, leather, cedar, blue fruit. The roundness of merlot, while a small component, helps to round the edges

Blackberry, black cherry, cassis, raspberry, licorice, mossy earth, eucalyptus and oak. Great structure and well-integrated tannins.

Obviously a riper vintage but this isnt overdone. A clear effort was made to steer this away from becoming a fruit bomb. Drinks well and shows dark fruit, but not much acidity. Ready to go now and for the next 3-4 yrs.

Smells like blueberries. Tastes like really fine red wine. Great stuff.
