Awesome vintage and at a great point in its evolution. Long animalistic syrah, game, cigarette ash, rabbit fur, background of black pepper, smooth rounded tannin. Great bouquet jumping out, light on palate

Unbelievably good and 10-20 years too young.

Was a bit closed. Took 3 hours to open up. Lovely classic Rhine style. Nice chocolate and tobacco on the nose. A bit tannic and good alcohol still evident. But nice. Will wait on the rest as this will evolve over the next 3-5 years.
