I had some doubts when we opened it but after a half hour it was profound. Intensity and concentration that had nothing to do with wood or alcohol. Beautiful texture.

Red cherry and purple flowers. Starting to drink well, but still has some firm grip on the back end.

A 1990 that could be mistaken for 2005 or 2009. A remarkable wine!
