While a lot of oak is used in the making of this wine it is not so perceptible on the palate unless you count the oxygen impact from the long elevage. Freshness, along with the long skin and lees contact lead in the flavor and aroma department. Cheese, cheese rind, primary and tertiary citrus and orchard fruits play a tug of war. Great now but going to wait a few years more on this vintage. 92++

Very nice, tense yet fresh and some roundness, really good.
