I looked at this over four days and its development over that time was captivating. Scents of caramel and malty oak early, it's a super smooth and seductive wine. Raspberries and dried cranberries on day one and two with cedar and dutch chocolate coming to the fore later. Aniseed and dark cherry step forward late in the piece too. Some good depth and concentration is met with a gentle medley of exotic spices. Long and persistent, big and firm tannins are handled well softening over time. A wine for the long haul which will continue to improve with bottle age.
