Wow. What a nose. Smokey and super leathery. Age has done a number on this. Black cherry fruit, blackberry fruit, amazing purity and cleanliness to the aromas. Palate is so refined and juicy with amazing purity and soft, supple tannins. Elegant with impressive fruit concentration, with a small berry fruit intensity but also slathered with minerals and rocks. So fresh and energetic and everything is so well integrated. Utterly divine. Age only makes these so much better. What length and a perfectly dissipating finish. — 5 months ago

Dark, brooding, mysterious, beautiful nose. Dark mashed flowers, dark berries, gorgeous minerality, smells limestoney, amazing details and precision to this nose. Just gorgeous and so deep. Rich, ripe and wow levels of purity with an engaging limestone sweetness accented with deep pure sweet berries. So well made and refined. But so deep and so much more to say. This is so greet. Structure and so classic. Such a long finish. Dynamite. — a month ago

What a nose. Love this when it’s young. Incense, smokey wood shavings, bright berry fruit, mesmerizing nose. Super juicy and so clean with incredible minerality, freshness, bright berry fruit and so much energy. Awesome. Such fine tannins and finesse. So good. — a month ago
