A really amazing wine. Good richness and purity. Surely not much in way of stems. Very dark. Tar, spice. Impressive.

Drank better than I expected, but still pretty damn young. 5 more years minimum for my tastes.

Nose of ripe plums, blackberries, meats, vanilla and violets. Dark red with slight fading and brown tints around the rim. Creamy and remarkably delicate for the nose, rounded fruits, acidity doing well for balance, slight tightness still in the middle and proper finish of fruits and red/violet florals. Woody notes, grilled meats, slight wet stones.
