From Magnum. Inky purple in color. The nose is great with black raspberries, plums, grilled meat, white pepper and char. On the palate, this has an incredible texture. Smooth and velvety yet powerful and muscular. Notes of black raspberries, spice and slight charred earth. This is deep and complex yet still has a long life left. This vintage has opened and shut a few times since release but seem like it has settled and is open. There is a lot of alcohol but it doesn't show up anywhere in the glass. One of those wines that each sip makes you want to have another. Spectacular wine.
