More eucalyptus and licorice than Asili 2014 and Pora 2014. Orange peel, lavender, rosemary, dried earl grey tea leaves. High/harsh acidity, elevated tannins - medium granularity in terms of texture, medium+ body. Medium+ finish. Clay and limestone.

This is dense, intense and lovely. Dark berries, with tannin and thick fruit. Good stuff.

Gorgeously pure, slightly sour cherry fruit, coffee, drying wood, sage. Wonderful fully mature fruit drives through with a finish with hints of sherry and gratified. Lovely.

This was holding together by a thread, not much fruit left. Lots of bricking and orange hues in the glass. Not representative of most ‘71s I’ve had—they have generally been in excellent form. Hopefully this is an outlier because I have a ‘71 from this maker gifted by @Joe Lucca that I’m looking forward to.

Still so young, but not tight. High tones of cherry and flowers and a long, drying finish.

Delicious. Floral perfume jumps out of the glass. Tart cherries and plums.

Cool, structured, incensed. Tannins are already smoothing out nicely. Clarity
