This is also rather restrained aromatically with a somber indeed almost muted nose comprised of dark berries briar and an interesting hint of leather. The rich and very serious medium weight flavors are shaped by the presence of decidedly firm tannins yet the palate staining finish is very well-balanced and impressively persistent. This is definitely not ready for prime time at the present as there is more than a touch of austerity that will require another 5 or so years to dissipate. In short this robust and powerful effort is simply terrific. ♥

It displays more herbal notes and darker fruit. In the glass it sports a velvety texture with underlying structure that suggests another 2-3 years of cellaring will be beneficial. Drink it from 2013 to 2020+.

Vivid ruby-red. Aromas of cherry and dark berries with complicating cola and violet nuances and a hint of toasty oak. Dense and fresh with tangy acidity giving spine to the sappy flavors of blackberry and bitter cherry... Vivid ruby-red. Aromas of cherry and dark berries with complicating cola and violet nuances and a hint of toasty oak. Dense and fresh with tangy acidity giving spine to the sappy flavors of blackberry and bitter cherry. Nicely plump on the finish which features soft tannins and a late note of dark chocolate. 90+
