Leather and a bit animal on the nose with sweet red pastille fruit and floral aromas that are fairly intense. This is gamy with perhaps a hint of brett on the nose. Sweetly-fruited and polished in the mouth with a weightlessness to the intensity of the palate. Filled with dark fruit and featuring fudge accents, light spiciness and very well integrated wood accents. The finish shows nice, long cherry stone flavors with super fine, elegant tannins. 92pts

dark and bricky in color this looks older than the other wines. Effusive on the nose with deep notes of old wood, underbrush, gamy, prosciutto, wild boar meat, fruit tones of pear and apricot then a touch of cigar ash and mint this is compelling on the nose with a wild array of aromatics. In the mouth this is nice and bright with great transparency to the elegant, midweight body that offeres up evolved notes of dried herbs, dried cherry fruit, a touch of vanillin a hint of tobacco, a touch of tea and dry, grey mineral tones on the midpalate. A bit angular on the finish with a touch of mouthgrab though long and pure with mineral tinged wild berry notes and a finale with fleshy peach tones. With dinner the nose had settled into a fine gamy, tobacco driven groove with a base of cigar box spice and recalled a funky old bordeax, a bit Gruaud like. It gained a bit of richness in the mouth with lots of soft tannins supporting the beautiful dark fruit and while some of the earlier complexity was gone the fine balance and elegant texture of the wine kept this compelling. Absolutely at peak though note likely to remain there for much longer this was my WOTN! 2008-2011
