Inky, with big legs in the glass showing off the 14.5% alcohol. On the nose I get red plum, raspberry, strawberry and cedar- not at all what I was expecting. The palate is super smooth and inviting- gentle tannins, red fruits galore and crispy acidity on the back end. Coffee shows up on the mid palate and I sense a tar component on the finish. Lovely mouthfeel on this one folks. It’s built to drink now and might take to a few years of cellaring but why wait. 88 points from me. Serve with strip steaks! For $20, it gets 4 stars. Salut….
