This wine is deep inky in color with wood and dark fruits on the nose. On the mid pallet are dark fruits lots if wood and smoke coming through. In the finish the wine is slightly bitter and could use some breathing. There’s tannins and wood persisting through the medium finish. I would give it an 88 or so. There’s lots of value in this bottle.
