The hint of chocolate, smoke, licorice, old wood, and black cherry come alive this year. The fruit has a wildness to it along with sweetness, freshness and purity. The energetic, lusty finish wraps everything nicely.

Spicy, mineral driven, earthy, dark berry focused nose with a structured, full bodied, powerful, concentrated, fresh, tannic wine. This definitely needs time in the cellar to be fun to drink.

Full bodied, earthy, still on the young side, with ripe, juicy, fresh, crisp, dark plums, black cherry, forest floor and truffle notes. Just starting to open, an hour or so in the decanter should add a lot to the wine.

Nice wine, a little rustic in its tannins, but offering a lot of vanilla, blackberry, black raspberry, earth and spicy charm that softens with air. Drinking well today, it might gain a bit more complexity with age, but there is no reason not to pop a cork today.

Fully mature and on the downhill slide, there is still complexity in the earthy, tobacco, oceanic nuances that blend perfectly with the ripe cherries. A little bit rustic, but still charming, the wine needs consumption.

Earthy, with a distinctive truffle, tobacco and olive drenched nose, the rustically styled wine showed much younger than its true age. Still, this is a not a wine I'd hold for further development.

Fully mature, the wine is more interesting with its earthy, tobacco, leaf, cherry, forest and cigar aromas than on the medium bodied, earthy spicy, red plum palate. If you are holding a bottle for further evolution, you are better off popping a cork, that waiting any longer.
