Impressive for the distinctive flavors and aromas.
Color: Dark purple red core, vibrant almost, red edges
Nose: Green pepper (good kind), meaty notes - beef jerky like, plum, tar, blackberry and peppercorns. Blind I would have sworn a Syrah.
Palate: The green pepper and meat notes come through with the black fruits of plum, blackberry, spicy notes, big tannins.
Nicely evolved sine the last bottle, but too much of the green pepper for me is somewhat of a flaw, trace notes are fine but this amount does not integrate well with the other aromas and flavors.
