What a showing. Just smoking. Floral, granite, so so floral. Violets, roses. Black olive. Just amazing. Bittersweet cocoa. Other chocolate? Valrhona? Such depth and just so pretty. Really expressive of place with just incredible minerality. Juicy and nimble but with a lovely mid palate opulence and richness but buoyed by terrific granitic freshness. Lovely sweet and ripe tannins. Amazing length, just epic. 9.5 for now. Curious if gets to 9.6.

Psychotic. Huge pure berry nose. Almost cassis. Gorgeous. Earthy, granitic, mineral, unreal aromas. Chewy and dense with wonderful purity and freshness. A baby now but with enormous potential. Stunning balance and so juicy with serious dense structure. So fresh. So pure. What a wine.
