👁 This wine has a deep ruby hue. It has clarity, noticeable tearing, and extraction on the glass.
.
.
👃 On the nose, this wine has medium(+), developing aromas of dark fruit, such as black cherry preserves, candied cassis, blackberry bramble, as well as baking spices, such as cardamom, nutmeg, and cinnamon alongside vanilla, molasses, and cedar. It also has delicate potpourri, earth, and leather aromas.
.
.
👄 On the palate, this wine is dry, with medium acidity, a full body, medium alcohol, grippy tannins, and medium(+) flavor notes consistent with the nose, including dark fruit (black cherry, cassis, blackberry), baking spices (cardamom, nutmeg), also anise, molasses, tobacco, and earth.
.
.
This wine is very good albeit youthful. It has impeccable balance of tannins, acid, and flavor notes. It could be improved with more age in the bottle, which will soften the tannins and reveal an increased complexity in tertiary aromas. This wine may be consumed with joy now, but will be improved with more aging in the bottle.

Beautiful fine, floral nose, full bodied, velvety but structured. Always one of my favourites. Still very young but with the potential to become really good

A little young. 2016 drunk in sept 2019. No excessive earth or raisin. Tasted better after breathing over night.
