Day 1: Just a small glass so no formal notes.
Day 2: This is blossoming. Beautiful featuring cassis, plum, cigar, sweet peppers and oak. Very rich and flavorful wine. A real gem and certainly needs time. If you pop and pour you will not get the full potential of this wine. 93 points
Day 3: Showing well but spices and some heat get in the way of the awesomeness day 2 showed. Cassis, spices, oak and red hots. Medium finish. 87 points
Day 4: this is better than 3. Spice, coffee beans, cherry, plum and earth. 90 points
Recommendation: Pop now and drink most of the bottle on day 2. (93 points)
