Deep ruby to light garnet red color. Great nose of rose petals, mulch, earth, peet moss, dried herbs and black and raspberries. Lots of stuff going on aromatically. Flavors are plum, berries, leather, and tar. Finishes well, but still a lot of tannins to resolve. I would leave this alone for at least another year or two before trying again. Very promising wine, while still entirely enjoyable right now.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
