Tasted side by side with the 2014 vintage. Deep purplish red with an almost bluish hue. Lush and layered nose with blueberries, sweet spices, crushed rocks and violets. So much more going on too, kept developing in its complexity. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Rich and voluptuous on the palate, insanely fruity but very well built. Tons of black and blue fruits on the attack with layers of spices, cinnamon, and a little bit savory. Even a bit of olives underneath with growing white pepper and crushed white rocks. Long and lingering finish with great structure throughout and a touch of heat. Heat was less prominent a bit above cellar temperature. Drink till 2034. (93+) | Sample from the winery - $70

@TheSkip you’ll like the 12 even more with some air!!
