Super dark and extracted color, like a glass of purple ink. Expressive and intense on the nose, with elements of tar, sweet black fruits, rose, melted rubber and smoke. The palate follows suit, with a gigantic juicy splash of ripe black fruits, vanilla, oak, tar and a beefy element that reminded me of a well made brisket. Some acidty provided a little balance, but also the slight tingle of volatile acidity reared its ugly head. The finish was filled with monster tannins and fruit. A beast now, but a lot of promise for the future.
