ITEM 8013031 - Removed from a temperature and humidity controlled wine cellar; Purchased at retail
A candidate for “wine of the vintage,” ...Bordeaux-like structure, good purity, and incredibly sweet fruit.
Deep, brooding aromas of dark fruits, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate and minerals...showing a rather muscular, claret-like minerality today but also a stronger fruit component.
Complex, if on a restrained scale, with nutmeg, dried currant and berry flavors, joined by mineral and sage. Tight, focused, balanced and very Bordeaux-like in its restraint and refinement.
