Tasting Notes

The beautifully spicy nose of black pinot fruit and a host of subtle Asian sauce nuances, including hoisin and soy, is just beginning to display some secondary characters. There is impressively good concentration to the serious and tautly muscled mineral-suffused broad-shouldered flavors that brim with dry extract that really coats the palate on the vibrant, hugely long and explosive finish. This distinctly firm and robust old school effort is really most impressive though note well that it is nowhere near being ready but it should be great when it finally arrives at its apogee.
