Description

Here too the nose is quite restrained with its admirably pure aromas of red cherry, dark currant, spice and earth along with notes of violet and lavender. I very much like the sense of underlying tension to the succulent, indeed even juicy, medium weight plus flavors that exude a subtle salinity on the tautly muscular and firm finish that flashes just a hint of youthful austerity. This isn’t quite as complex as the Chambertin but it’s close and it may well close the gap over time as this is also very clearly structured for mid to even longer-term keeping.  95 points - Allen Meadows, Burghound
