A beautiful floral nose. Roses, plums. Quite focused but very light and pure. Gorgeous

Needed quite a bit of air. Powerful dark berry fruit. Firm fruit on the palate, great energy, fine ground clove and star anise. Shows tons of promise.

In the sundown of its youth, while it's lost a lot of its ebullient fruit and florals, it hasn't started to pick up the secondary funk that will add complexity in its later years. The length and finesse of texture are extraordinary, but like a lot of the very serious '05s, perhaps they should be enjoyed at least 5-10 years from now. Potential is much higher than my current rating.
