Very tight and tannic. With long decanting this started to open up a bit to reveal dense and complex flavours. Blackberries, black cherries, black liquorice, oak, spice, herbs.

A great wine but this really needs time. Worth trying for sure and it's always nice to have some of these in the cellar, though in my opinion you're definitely paying a premium for the name.

$100 for a 92 score wine doesn't say "great value!" to me. Depending on your tastes you can easily get equal pleasure for about half the price.

Nevertheless, this is a tasty drink.
