Wow. This is one vintage before what I view as Justin’s transformative vintage of 2007 - kind of like Einstein in 1904 for any science geeks out there. This took about 30 min to come into focus, but once it did - wow. It’s a bit more heavily extracted to my palate than what he’s done ever since, but if you cool this down a few degrees and give it some time, you are richly rewarded with layers of intense but balanced fruit that belies its 15 years. A great foreshadowing of what has come to pass, this is amazing. — 18 days ago
