Needed a whole day to become civilized. Stunning nose of blueberry, blackberry, graphite, granite and dark flowers. Some saddle leather as well. Also wet pottery clay. Palate is juicy and concentrated with terrific energy and thrust. Sappy and fresh with such fine grained tannins. Terrific layering and a soft density. So pure and deep. Elegant like only the best can be. Amazing balance and length. Age for 5-7 more years then watch out!

Young and stunning. Nose is big time violets, huge granite, so mineral and fine. Wow. Just the purest aromas one can imagine. Herbs, lavender. Concentrated and so juicy. Amazingly pure and fresh. Structured and deep. Lovely slippery fruit but this has been closed for about 6 hours straight now with glimmers of what it can be. Wait 5 years. It is all there.
