This just came and I wanted to try it. It probably would have been better off with a bit more cellaring. Don't get em wrong, it was very good, but it was tight and gave off the impression that better things are in store. Purple in color. The nose has raspberries, chocolate covered strawberries, bramble and spice. On the palate, this is deep but undelineated. Lots of black cherry, and raspberry fruit. Some oak. Medium tannins. It is delicious and the bottle was emptied quickly. Still, I would hold these for a short time and there is plenty of upside.
