The textured, intense and broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration with fully mature structural elements. There is ample buffering sap...an explosively long, linear and overtly austere finish...
Black fruits, flowers, minerals and licorice on the vibrant nose, plus a whiff of truffle; I would have picked this blind as a Cote de Nuits wine. Dense, sappy and sweet but with a light touch and excellent definition
Sweet and lively on the nose, the oak consumed by the fruit. Extremely fine tannins – almost chalky they are so fine grained. Very dry yet smooth and fresh. Excellent length.
