When I first tasted this parcel about 3 wks ago, we were pairing it with steak...We almost thought we ruined our taste with the smell of the steak, but after taking this wine outside, we realized, the wine had beautiful blackened grilled steak across the majority of the palate. subtle light vanilla, smoke, and small nuances of leather and earth in the background. By the 2nd glass, the wine had opened a little, lost some of the steak, and matured to a currant, cherry pit, and slight annis, but very little jam and maintained that dark background. This wine maintained a dark and broody taste to the last drop. It may have been the most unique wine I have had, and I can not say enough about its great flavor. Truly one of my top 10 wines. The wine appeared almost blackened red and cloudy , with a perfect orange-ish oxidation ring.
