Reveals bright cherry, black currant and mineral notes, backed by a firm, tactile structure. Sweet fruit, spice and smoke accents linger on the long finish. Best from 2017 through 2035.
This opens with noticeable if not completely dominant reduction as there is enough spiciness evident to suggest that the funk is not permanent. And extended aeration did manage to dissipate the reduction though I underscore that it required two days of air to accomplish this. There is a lovely energy to the attractively well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that exude a very fine minerality on the velvety finish that delivers fine depth and length. I would only advise buying this with the proviso that you intend to cellar it as it requires far too long in a decanter at this early stage to open it for dinner.
