Olives and herbs permeate the black and dark red berries. You also find an array of yellow spices and a touch of smoke. The wine is concentrated, deep, long, and with 1-2 hours of decanting, ready for the start of its drinking window. Drink from 2022-2035.

Still bearing the deep color from its youth, the wine is loaded with ripe, sweet, peppery, dark red berries, earth and chalky, rocks and stones. There is a solid depth of flavor and plenty of bright, red, spicy fruits in the finish. Another 5 years of cellaring should be perfect for this wine.

Young, inky, dark and brooding, with a few hours of air, the wine started to really open up. The wine is concentrated, rich and long. The licorice, cracked pepper, rock, earth and ripe, fresh blackberries are there from start to finish in the nose and on the palate. Another 5 -10 years will add a lot of complexity to this wine.

Still holding on tight, yet, there is no doubt as to how this is going to grow up. With good concentration, depth of flavor, and plenty of ripe tannin coupled with a showcase of smoked meat, thyme, blackberry, dark cherry and crushed rocks, the wine will need another 7-10 years before it starts showing its best.
