Excellent! Great value!

First bottle (drunk shortly after it was shipped): Jet black violet color. Brooding, reticent nose of baker's chocolate, roasted earth, and concentrated cassis and blackberry extract. Dark, tannic, and powerfully concentrated, with very low-toned dark berry and dark chocolate notes. Long, clingy finish with some cracked black peppercorn bite. Reminds me of a young theoretical California Bandol. Second bottle (2 months later): Still very deep and vibrant, with great concentration of fruit but no jamminess whatsoever. Just a lot more open than the first bottle (which was probably recovering from shipping). Really delicious.
