Past notes apply, but let's go through the motions. Decanted for 45 minutes. Nose: Tobacco, pine needles, soil, and a cherry base. Deep ruby in color, medium plus bodied, medium plus alcohol, medium acidity. More red cherry emerges on the palate, and pipe tobacco... More precisely, my dad's Captain Black from the 1980s. Taste not quite as complex as the smell. Finish is medium. Tannins are perfectly centered. This just misses my 94 point threshold.

Red brick color, mint, tobacco on the nose and on the palate. A bit of chocolate emerging on the palate. Acid and tannins will deliver this wine to another dimension in a few more years. Even now it's top shelf!

Completely shut down for two nights, no aroma or flavor at all. Maybe it needs a few more years in the cellar. But thankfully, on day 3, it opened up and started to express itself. Sweet, smoked cherries and leather, nice body, sticky tannins, and beautiful lift 🥰 😍
