After a glass poured from Coravin about a year ago, and then kept in bottle, this one has some rather serious longevity, this one was initially all about mint, herb spices, and green pepper with a strong black pepper finish. As this one sat in the glass, much more of a ripe, red fruit emerged. This one is way better with food than without. I'd easily say that this one is a 93 with food, but without food I think that a clove and kind of an herbal note kind of takes over this wine and lowers the rating. I think this wine will integrate further over the next few years, and really is still quite stiff on the finish.
