Killer intensity in this vintage, where an ideal season made for an extra-long hangtime and a perfect balance of tannin and flavor. There’s a great minerality behind the flavors of black cherry and currants, and a full-bodied, spicy meatiness on display. If you keep these ‘hidden’ from company, we won’t blame you.
Happy to see it finer-grained than some, but equally intense. Tobacco, ash and dark fruit. Some grilled meat, too. Full-bodied with a spice, white-pepper and hunan finish. Wow is all I can say! Drink or hold.
