Red as a brick and very smooth. This opened with some aggressive vegetal (cedary eucalyptus) character and a distinct dusty earthiness on the nose. It mellowed over the day to reveal more cassis/berry notes. Very nice on day 2, dead by day 3.

    Medium garnet hue. Complex and exquisite aromas of dried currant with hints of truffle cigar box and crhme de cassis. The palate is elegant and refined centered around a core of red fruit truffle minerals and leather. The tannins are smooth as silk. This is elegance and finesse all the way. Now is the absolute perfect time to enjoy this beauty. Neil Mechanic.

The palate is holding up well due to fresh acidity on the mid-palate that is centered around a core of red fruit, minerality, worked leather and ... Neil Mechanic.
