9.3

Lifted and very aromatic nose of herbs, dead leaves and freshly raked leaves, spice, tar, mulberry, mid season cherry, so lifted. Really compelling aromas. Better than Badina 10 and Mazzuchelli 10. Layered nose. Just sick. The tar and mint mixing is so good. Palate is juicy and deep with wonderful freshness and purity. Very balanced and suave but substantial tannins. So clean and pure. Lovely mid season dusty red cherry fruit. Terrific inner mouth aromas and a fresh, complex structured palate. Big tannins on the finish suggest further aging is warranted and it does “youthen up” when it gets air. Really balanced for such a big wine, even some finesse. 9.3 for now but let’s see what air does to it.

Terrific after some air. More round. Tannins much more velvety. Sweet fruit. So fresh and energetic. Terrific. So serious. Years to go.
