Matthew Cohen

Wow. So much for the Lombard can’t be drunk for 10 years thing. Mos def will improve over time but you can see the brilliance today. Earthy nose. Some mushroom. Palate is really an elegant version of POmmard. You have the blackberry fruit for sure. And some licorice. But they are balanced and it has nice acidity. The blackberries are more picked off the vine in the wild kind then the dense knock your head off kind. This wine has upside from this score as it ages. High floor given the balance and structure. Bought from fass selections. .... as this opens some spice. ... as this opens nose is getting some dark lilacs. Palate density is more apparent. Still elegant. Internal aromatics are this dense penetrating spicy live blackberry thing. Like inhaling a blackberry bush in the forest. Finish is a bit tight but has a kiss of chocolate. Wow. ... after 3 hours stunning freshness.
