2009 vintage consumed in October, 2018.

Aging very gracefully, the nose still has gobs of fruit. Some of it fresh, some of it dried, some of it baked. It's the complexity of fruit that is really remarkable hair. Not necessarily the complexity of other esoteric or earth-based aromas. Just the sheer menagerie of dark fruits, light fruits, and fruits of all colors.

The powdery tannins have really resolve themselves and go down like Silk. As you drink, a bouquet of lilacs and violets come up through the back of your nose leading to a long lip-smacking finish.

It also transforms and peels off in layers as you go through the bottle.

If you have any of this in the cellar, there is no dire need to jump on it. This bottle could have easily lasted another five to seven years.
