What a nose. Massive fruit. Big, ripe, dark and red cherries. So intense. A lipstick like intensity. Glorious spices. Gorgeous minerality and a sense of deepness. Tree bark, menthol and an inner earth character. The juxtaposition between ripe fruit and minerality is astonishing. Palate is so ripe but allied with just classic and incredible freshness. Big, but ripe and silky tannins and lovely, dense cherry fruit. So balanced and ultra clean and pure. The decadence of this wine allied with the racy minerality is a highlight for me. With air there is a savory and meaty element to the nose that adds complexity. So juicy and textured. The minerals really wash one’s palate on the finish. This has substantial structure which hints to me it needs 3-4 years. It’s in no way not inaccessible now but will be much better in 3 years.
