Surprised that I couldn't find any specific tasting note on this wine, even archived, and I purchased 3 bottles of this on release so thought it would be a good time to try one.

Nose of blackberry and boysenberry combined with a scent of alcohol that dissipated after 10-15 minutes. Strong taste of blackberry and blackcherry, with a secondary flavor of truffle. Complex and concentrated. Finishes with firm, drying tannins and moderate oak.

After being opened about 30 minutes it became even richer and was extremely well balanced. Nice long, lingering finish with more blackberry flavors. 92 points. Very impressive considering I purchased these for $17.99.

I will probably wait another year or two to open the next bottle as I believe this still has a lot of life left, probably 3-5 years.
