*Sweet Spot* This is also very ripe but here the cassis, violet and black berry aromas are noticeably fresher. The rich, intense and broad-shouldered flavors display a distinct mineral character and better elegance to the dense but fine tannins that shape the hugely long finish. This has the potential to be outstanding but it will require the better part of two decades to arrive at its peak.
Good dark red. Dark, brooding aromas of cherry pit, botanical herbs, smoke and earth. Deep, energetic and penetrating, offering a beautiful combination of volume and focus. This very tactile wine boasts vibrant, highly perfumed flavors of black fruits, pepper and spices and finishes uncompromisingly dry, with firm tannins and superb cut and lift. Showed a riper aroma of strawberry jam after 24 hours in the recorked bottle without any loss of freshness. I'd lay this beauty down for at least six to eight years. (ST) 93+
