Red and black plum, prune, leather, blood, roasted chestnuts, espresso. Might not be in it for the long haul but this is delicious right now.

Spicy dark fruit with just enough acidity to keep coming back for more. So we'll knit

Lovely black currant and anise scents. Cloudy, gassy funk in the flavors.

What a fantastic representation of what this grape can be. The 2009 is absolutely singing right now. On the nose there is a wonderful onslaught of violet followed with amazing cranberry notes with a dirt note undertone, A hint of white pepper on the back. An insanely silky mouth feel with anise notes, dark fruit and a stone component. On the pallet this lasts for a while.
