This was a great wine, but I had hoped it to show a bit better. I gave it 12 hours of air and that wasn't enough. There is a glass left in the bottle and I am curious how it will show later today. That said, it was an excellent wine. Inky purple in color. The nose has black raspberries, white pepper, roasted herbs and char. On the palate, there is a nice texture. The wine is quite tight and seemingly ver fully unwound. Plenty of black raspberry fruit with an underlying char. Nice finish. We served with a variety of chocolate desserts and that seemed to work well.
