Terrific nose. Floral, tar, roses, mint, tweed jacket, serious cherry, complex, so many different aromas, crazy spice. So good. Licorice. Amazing cherry flower with air. Sick. Palate had an abundance of fruit. Concentrated, sweet and so dense. Pure, clean and so textured. Amazing balance and so well made. Elegant, delicate and so so deep. This is a very good wine with terrific harmony. Shows off why 2016 is as good as it is. Long. Juicy. So so pure.

Update - after 4.5 hours this got that supernal balance very few wines get. 9.4 to 9.5.
