🏅 Rating 94+/100 (4,45⭐)

This is my 3rd and the last bottle over the past year. It definitely sits at its plateau now and fully awake. Difficult to say when the drinking window will close down. ⁣

Lots of energy and precision. Cabernet Sauvignon dominant. Perfumed black currant jam with leaves. Complex tertiary aromas make a beautiful bouquet. Balance of tannins, fruits and acidity at its perfection. Tannins have soften but not yet faded away.⁣

Undoubted 2nd Growth quality.

This is a proper pour after a 1hr decant.

Good? Birthday wine. Great color and nose, structure, but over a bit of time it faded and broke up to be a wee bit dusty. Flawed? Perhaps. Still enjoyable.
