Deep garnet red, no bricking on the edges. Layered nose with a touch of brett, bright cherries, perfume and forest floor. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Smooth and elegant attack with perfumed notes, crushed gravel and dried cherries. Excellent backbone and dry, long finish. Drink till 2032.

Still so much power here. Tannins fine and polished giving a round succulent feel. Charred earth, blackberry, cassis, tobacco, graphite, rusty iron? Writing this a few days after the fact but needless to say, spectacular.

This was amazing...medium body, rich organic soil, newly ridden horse saddle, tart cherry, dried crocodile leather, extra long finish, sophisticated structure, finishing with a dark sweet cherry...a perfect bottle of wine.

This was amazing. Such great black fruit and notes of tar and cedar. This is a true Grand Vin. Briefly decanted to settle and didn't lose much. Still some slight acids and tannins. Ultra smooth.
