Bright, dark ruby-red. Perfumed, showy nose offers black cherry, licorice, graphite and spices. Broad and creamy on entry, then a bit imploded in the middle palate, showing a slightly medicinal quality to the dark fruit and licorice flavors. Less fruity and sweet today than the 2008 version, but with a serious tannic structure for aging. In a distinctly closed stage.

Still needs a lot of time in the bottle as the tannins are chalky dry. With some air, a nice mixture of fruit opened up. Only question is, how accurate is the 15.1% alcohol content on the label? Seems much more potent.
