This is a beautiful wine that needs a lot more time in bottle. Still tight after 7 hours of air. Pepper and meat and violets and tannin. Gonna be a stunner.

A respectable monster slowly devolving and deconstructing, eminently enjoyable another 5 years!

Tannins linger on the tongue, satisfying depth, honest and not pretentious.
