Healthy bright, dark red to the rim. Musky nose combines dark raspberry, mocha, chocolate, shoe polish, mint and licorice, plus a suggestion of rocky minerality. Fine-grained and smooth but distinctly minty, conveying good concentration, healthy acidity and a slight greenness to its midweight dark fruit and licorice flavors. A tad sour on the end, with a repeating suggestion of eucalyptus, but the tannins are dusty and fine-grained. I'd drink this soon, before its remaining fruit disappears.

Very impressed. I didn’t think I’d like this as much as I would. Bigger style, but tamed nicely by fiery menthol and eucalyptus tones.

Great deep color and nose. Still vibrant. Not sure if it will get better but it was delicious last night. #holidaykickoffbottle

Still has life! Tight on immediately opening but slowly softening. Dark berries but also something deeper. Want to say licorice but not exactly, not cocoa or coffee, just a little bitterness. Will go beautifully with filet mignon for our 6 year wedding anniversary.

Soft tannins. Has some age on it. Good fruit. Hints of black berry.
