This has a gravelly texture and chewy dark berry, spicy oak, anise and espresso notes, showing no signs of fading, and the core fruitiness remains vibrant. A solid, sturdy effort. Drink now through 2022. (JL, Web Only-2016)
Not very pleasant now due to the sharpness and bitterness of the texture, as well as the wood tannins that come from aging in 100% new oak. The flavors are primary fruit blackberries, cherries and black currants. This is a big wine now lacking in polish, but it should develop in the cellar and begin to acquire bottle bouquet after 2012, continuing to glide through 2018 or so. *Cellar Selection*
