Embodies elegance and finesse without sacrificing power. Sexy nose, strawberry confiture, spices plums, ceylon, pepper, hot rocks and gravel, red flowers and savory herbs, worn leather. So silky, sleek tannins, fresh yet soft acid. Just singing right now and clearly has life ahead of it.

Just starting to hit its stride though still not the greatest vintage for VT.

Stunning. Again. This wine is everything I want from life, but with a bit too much booze to be perfect.

2000. Coiled, in not completely ready to pounce. Poised--good tension between fruit, mineral, animale, garrigue. Freshness and gras in equilibrium. Good upside. Re-buy.

Fascinating nose that changes with every sniff. Delicate at first but added weight with an hour of air. A wine at its peak but could go for several more years.

Powerful vintage in a great place. Dark fruit with dust and spice.
