Juicy and still with plenty of life. This is drinking perfectly.

Very tight at first but with time gave beautiful nose of ripe red fruit.
Was actually quite purple, Gave away the rather high % of Petit Verdot.
A great wine but hold it longer if you can! — 7 months ago
Grapefruit yes, floral yes, acidity yes, delicious yes.
But not what our group was expecting, perhaps that is our fault, perhaps some of that is on the somm as we described what we wanted out of the wine.
I was thinking this, somewhat like a Guigal Condrieu, would have some more weight and richness and would stand up to our mains better but it didn’t shine.
This was more restrained than anticipated. — 5 months ago
I loved this wine. Amazed at how much life was left in the nose and palate. Tannins were totally resolved, elegant and pure.
When I decanted there was a monster slick of dregs, careful with storage and service or you will end up with a muddy mess. — 7 months ago
