Wow. This is one of the best reds I’ve had all year. Just incredibly rich, yet elegant and fresh. I was worried about the potential of excessive oak treatment, but I worried for no good reason. I can’t even notice the oak treatment, and all that shines is the terrific dark blackberry and blackcurrant fruit and great freshness. As food friendly a big red wine as there is. Although not cheap, this is still a QPR in my book and just a flat out great wine that will have the stuffing to age for decades. If that’s what you plan to do, I suggest getting a case, because any less won’t last very long given how this is drinking right now.
