This bold red begins heady, dark, opulent and vinuous from the start. The nose lifts with ripe plums, a touch of soy, salt shoreline and dried cloves. The feel of this brooding black mass of a wine hits your mouth like a mixing bowl full of chocolate dipped cherries with outside edges of caramels, toffees, and French Oak vanillin. The mouthfeel is large and slippery and while certainly drinking incredibly in the most youthful stage of its life, the sense the tannins will melt and smooth nicely over the next 5 years is eminent. Cellared correctly this will be a 15-year wine or more.
