...touches of iris, potpourri & rose petals... succulent ripe tannin, very fine acidity & decidedly linear towards the finish but extraordinarily long in the mouth with tangible mineralité... One of the wines of the vintage? Quite possibly.
Great purity and lift to the aromas of black cherry, violet, graphite, bitter chocolate and minerals...Finishes with outstanding flavor authority, length and grip. This wine should go on for decades.
...cool, airy & extraordinarily complex... red raspberry, black cherry, violet, rose petal, Asian-style spices; cinnamon & anise plus a hint of orange pekoe tea... breathtaking in just how much power & intensity it packs... In a word 'wow'!
Very dark crimson. Heady, opulent nose. Masses of mass buried in here. All future. Lots of sinew and potential. Very juicy on top of great tannic structure. Dense and a bit unreadable except for that nose.
