Wrapped up tight; not much aroma or flavor. Shows sweetness and concentration midpalate, then the gripping structure takes over. Stays fresh, with a sense of verve on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2030. 100 cases made. (BS)
Fairly deep color. Gorgeous, sexy, wild, floral, and gamy nose is big and sweet with a upscale, classy sauvage. In the mouth, this is rich, ripe, and concentrated, a very generous wine. Still youthful and a little tight, we are nevertheless impressed with this wine’s concentration, structure, and vibrant acidity. There’s a lot of material here; reminds us of a Burgundian version of a Guigal “La La” Cote Rotie. Penetrating finish with good length. Not everyone loved the modern full-throttle style, but most did. The wine has plenty of life ahead.
Good medium red. Wild, musky nose features balsamic roasted herbs, licorice and truffle. Thick, sweet and hugely concentrated, conveying a distinctly wild quality and an utterly seamless texture to the flavors of small berries, black olive and saline minerality. Very rich wine with a surprisingly firm if slightly high-toned back end. At its peak right now.
