Stellar stuff. Great ruby color and a super kick of fruit and earth together. One doesn't overpower the other so the ruby fruits are all there, but there's no fruit bomby sugar rush that goes overboard.

Straight from the bottle: Color is a deep garnet, lightening at the edges. Nose has some alcohol heat, lots of berry (blackberry?) aroma, with some earthiness or herbal essence in there. First sip is big on the berry and earth, with smooth tannins and a finish that started a little bitter, but quickly turned to a nice fruity ending with a bit of heat. I think 'Chateauneauf du Pape' when I taste this, but this is more fruity than most CdP's I have tried. Very smooth straight from the bottle. I'm anxious to see what an hour in the decanter will do to this wine. Decanted for 1 hour: Even better nose. The heat has disappeared. It's all berry and herb now. Big fruit and even smoother tannins. Finish is a lot less bitter, but still has a touch of heat. Earthiness is still there also. I like this Cuvee a lot! Drinking very well right now, and reminds me a lot of a CdP.
