Incredible wine. Dark ruby with aromas of roses and strawberries. Ultra-smooth with beautiful tannins and deep red fruit flavor with undertones of tobacco and leather, but with a light mouth-feel. Best wine we've tasted in a while. Absolutely essential to decant this several hours beforehand as it improves dramatically when out of the bottle.
Beautiful deepÂ ruby.Â initial nose of bright cherries and spice, with obvious tannins and alcohol.Â over the next 3 hours, classic goudron on the nose emerges.Â still very tannic, but with a long long finish.Â obviously a very very well made wine, but not yielding nearly as much as it will in 10-15 yrs. ****/***** but tough to completely judge
