Firm, intense and tannic, this young, backward, tightly wound wine matches richness and concentration with subtlety and finesse. Loads of berry and cherry-scented flavors have a touch of spice and anise, and the flavors fan out on the finish. Lay this away.
This particular bottle was, not surprisingly, quite floral but there is also a bit of a green streak on the nose and while almost all RC's have it to some degree, this is more prominent than usual and in my experience, relatively unusual for it to still be present at 18 years of age no matter the vintage. While the nose does display some slight development, it is still largely if not completely primary, dissolving into round, supple and well-concentrated flavors that drive toward a vibrant and mouth coating finish of solid if not sensational length.
