There is enough reduction present to mask the nuances of the nose though the floral character does sneak past the funk. There is a wonderfully silky texture to the intense mineral and soil-inflected medium-bodied flavors that display really lovely delineation on the moderately austere and very firmly structured finish that delivers outstanding depth and length. This should improve for years to come and this is really most impressive. *Sweet Spot - Outstanding*
Good fresh red. Dark cherry and underbrush flavors are accented by peppery spices from the vinification with stems. Supple on entry, then concentrated, dry and uncompromising, with the stem component currently suppressing the wine's underlying fruit and minerality. Firmly built and energetic, but a bit dry following the Champans. Showing more energy than it did from barrel a year ago but the dusty tannins will require patience. (ST) 90+
