Very racy and persistent, with lovely definition to the plum, cherry compote and cassis notes, which are still tightly wound together. There's a mouthwatering dusting of white pepper and dark olive on the finish, and this picks up more grip as it airs in the glass. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM)
Opaque ruby. Aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola and incense, with a spicy topnote that builds with aeration. Rich and expansive but lively too, offering dark berry, bitter cherry and licorice flavors and a subtle violet pastille quality. For a big wine this shows impressive nuance. Closes on a floral note, with superb clarity and supple texture. (JR)
Mid crimson. Very subtle. Very dense. Reverberant. Nervier than the regular bottling. Bit neurotic but I'm sure it will ultimately be rewarding. (JR) 17.5+/20 points
