What a great showing for this wine. Consumed over two nights, this was better on the second night. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with boysenberries, charred gravel, spices and slight black licorice. Full bodied. Wonderful texture. This has a nice depth and complexity which did not show until the second day. Firm tannins. Nice black raspberry fruit with underlying char. Nice finish. Delicious. These need more time, but if opening soon, give it a long decant. Probably best to wait five to seven years and it will be god for ten to fifteen more after that. It drinks well on its own now or with big bold food. A couple points of upside on the score with some cellaring.
