Tasting Notes

A mildly spicy and earthy nose that mixes both notes of primary and secondary aromas leads to moderately concentrated medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a still somewhat austere but persistent finish. While this is not yet completely à point, it's getting close and could certainly be drunk now with pleasure. In short, this is a perfectly good but not truly distinguished vintage in the context of how this wine typically performs. Another recent bottle displayed quite a lot of reduction that never did entirely blow off though it did not extend to compromising the palate impression.
