Wonderfully complex nose of moderate intensity with cherry jam and meaty roasted herbs dominating joined by nuances of shoe leather, cinnamon, clery, funghi and a touch of balck pepper adding complexity. Medium bodied and still prettty tannic upfront with good fruit balancing it out. Leathery and herbal across the midpalate with a finish touched by mineral and bitter cocoa and lingering woody tannins in need of time to completely integrate. 2012-2020

nice dark, smoky plums on the nose with earth, leather, cocoa, and walnut brittle notes, a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon with time. begins loose and indistinct, coarse tannins, smoothes out somewhat with time turning nicely round if still drying, red fruits and cocoa on the palate, has a certain sense of freshness but disappoints in general, pretty woody stuff with minty spicy tones throughout.

This wine has a nice red colour with an hint of brick on the side,showing it has aged a bit. On the nose, you first get a sense of leather and molasse, and thent a bomb of mulberries. What a nose! I'm ready to marry any women who smells that great! At first taste, it just feels like silk - smooth and refreshing at first, then a lot of fruite gracisouly supported by soft and round tannins. This is ready to drink without a passage in carafe - just pour, and smell heaven!

Fully mature, in fact, perhaps slightly past its peak, this wine displays plenty of chocolate, smoke, and coconut in a seductive style. As it sits in the glass, it begins to fade ever so slightly. This wine needs to be drunk up, although I suspect magnums of it would fully justify the outstanding rating I gave it seven years ago.
