A great showing and yet another proof about this vintage special qualities. It's certainly evolved but still not ready as tannins still needs to soften a bit, in order for the pure and dried cherries, tar an licorice to come toward. Love this wine, and a true treat to taste vintage once more.

This is a very perfumed wine--lavender, violet and crushed rock burst from the glass. Very clean lines and bright red fruit, cedar and bay leaf. Still quite tannic and everything is not harmonious yet. Obvious quality but not ready for prime time.

2 hour decant and it was totally necessary. A lot of tannin but really turned the corner with time and food. Sour cherry and sage. Really big. I'd give it more time. Hold 4 years + or -
