This smelled of old bones, shoe polish, and balsamic tones but overall was very ungiving and remarkably shallow. On the palate there is a lot of sweetness here from both fruit and wood lending this an easy style. This is neither complex not particularly well structured, but it is fruity. 84pts

A bit of celery and bouillon is obvious on the nose, though there remains some lovely complexity with fine aromas of wood smoke, black tea, and dried rose petals slowly filling the glass along with a nice limestoney edge. There’s not much fruit left here, what remains is rather rough and rustic with lots of black spice and licorice flavors. This is pretty mean and shows a bit of heat on the palate. 82pts

Very limited notes due mainly to a lack luster performance. This wine came across and a dark bruiser without any grace. The nose showed red fruit and wet leaves. The palate was chunky, showing red fruit, sage and a bit of tar. Poor performance from a bottle that I was really looking forward to.
