Reddish tawny. Needed 6+ hours of air for the nose to open up. Notes of bing cherry, asian spice, dark earth and some rhubarb. Great funk and mouth feel. These 93s are barely budging out of their shells. This bottle needed at least 5 more years of slumber to round out, IMO. — a month ago
Enticing aromatics with red berries & sweet cherries, ripe and very fresh at the same time. A whiff of moss & undergrowth, a touch of spice. Beautiful.
Nice flow & balance on the palate with juicy acidity and a decent (ripe) tannic grip. Very fruity right now but there’s a savoury core as well. Good depth, too.
This is a really nice one, despite the hot(ter) vintage. — 22 days ago
Dark fruits and spices, nice energetic fruit, some grip and yet some elegance, good potential, needs time. 91-92
Fruits noirs, épices douces, bouche avec du fruit, du corps, assez équilibrée mais sur une finale montrant que le vin a besoin de temps. 91-92 — 21 days ago
