Gorgeous dark, almost opaque color. Nice nose of leather and earth. Deep rich palate with typical creme de cassis, oak and tobacco. I thought this was still a little primary in the fruit. Hopefully I can wait a few more years to try again with the hopes that it will become more integrated/balanced. If this showed more structure it could be 3-4 points higher. Should have decanted.

I was VERY impressed with this wine. Although young and still having substantial tannins, they were smooth and did not detract from the wine. Soaring, complex aromatics of leather, soil, mushroom & cassis, this just kept impressing with every sip. This has the structure to go many more years. I would like to get more of this wine.

Alcoholic, cherry-violet nose. Strong violet, "Choward" gum taste with firm, almost harsh tannins, tends to feel overly green and unripe, short finish. Maybe more time in the bottle may help.
