At decanting: smoke, leather, cherry, limestone, and beef! Celery seed and sweet beef bouillon greets the nose and while this is sweet and totally tertiary it is also savory and delicious reminding me of BBQ potato chips. Superb balance, in the mouth, along with lovely fruit, bright, sapid, and richly flavored with wild amarena cherry, and limestone lingering through the long finish while picking up some nice citrus/citrus peel notes and a hint of unripe strawberry on the finale. Sapid and bright with great length and beautiful faceted complexity, the only knock could be that the tannins are a touch angular. Seems pretty classic to me. 91pts
