This comes as close to perfect for me as possible. Rich, extremely concentrated fruit and oak flavors of vanilla and toast mixed with savory cloves and tobacco and faint hints (smell) of menthol - but nothing is overpowering. The tannins are silky smooth and luscious - I love this wine. (Tasting notes 3/7 - 1.5 hour decant).

Bruce Phillips told me this was the vintage he was most proud of and I can see why. Elegant with vibrant intensity, smooth tannins and cassis....an exceptional wine for any year, let alone 2011
