Tasting Notes

The generous wood this displayed from barrel has now been completely absorbed which allows the ripe, elegant and airy mineral and underbrush-infused red berry fruit aromas to gracefully introduce the earthy and strongly mineral-driven middle weight flavors that are at once detailed yet suave, all wrapped in a driving finish that is utterly delicious. This is a seductive and surprisingly accessible effort that is intense, long and quite serious and despite the its seeming approachable demeanor, it will need plenty of time yet before it is completely ready.

The generous wood this displayed from barrel has been almost completely eaten and has now been relegated to the background, which allow the ripe, elegant and airy mineral and underbrush infused red berry fruit aromas to take center stage. The pronounced minerality continues onto the subtly earthy flavors that somehow pull off the trick of being at once detailed yet suave, all wrapped in a driving finish that is utterly delicious, seductive and surprisingly accessible yet I suspect that this will tighten up after a few years as there is definitely a core of ripe tannins present. A very impressive effort in the context of the vintage. Recommended.
