Rich nose shows moist humus, toasted brown bread, rich dark berry fruit, sandstoney gravel. Dark and concentrated on the palate. Rich flavors show dark minerals, dark chocolate, graphite, but not a lot of fruit per se. lengthy finish has a lot of tannin. This could go for several more years but is very nice now. — 2 years ago
