Earthy, black cherry, toasted oak, tobacco are prominent. Red fruit also. Ripe prominent fruit gives way to a still strong tannic structure. Decanted an hour. Very smooth yet complex. Tannins need more time to soften up a bit to enter its prime.

Notes of whirled earth and anise, complex, with a succulent in feel and oak prominence. Beautiful nose with strong black cherries perfume, and sharply delineated finish.

Purple. Leathery, oaky nose. Big, bold, dry, balanced with lots of black and blue fruit. This lady will age well!
