($85) Full deep ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, blackberry and licorice. Dense, sweet and impressively concentrated; a real fruit bomb in the mouth. Primary black fruit flavors are complicated by tobacco, chocolate and exotic oak notes. Finishes very long and sweet, with lush, ripe tannins. As youthful as this is today, it's already quite sexy.

First scent is alot, the fruit pops out of the bottle. first glass did not meet the expectations based on the nose.
1 hour decanted, opens up very nice, long, balanced and well integrated.
