Tasted July 2015

This wine bottle weights just under a ton and it holds a very impressive wine. 

Dark purple, almost syrup-like texture pouring in the glass; it didn’t take long for the nose to shine of dark ripe fruit, cassis, rich black cherry, hint of vanilla and tree bark.  On the palate, it did require over an hour to really showcase its complexity, layers of intense ripe fruit laced with anise, clove and smoked meat.  Flavorful but seemingly restrained, somehow falling a bit short of its potential; firm tannin showed some rough edges. A couple more years would do this wine some wonder. Drink from 2017-2025 (18/20 for now)
