Another wine that shows intense perfumes, with accents of lipstick and earth framing fruit that smells a bit toasty, and sweetly woody and is just a bit heavy and dull at first. Air help this to gain focus and freshens up the core of wild cherry fruit nicely. Cool and compressed on entry, this shows lovely cut in the mouth with deep black cherry fruit saturating the palate, yet this remains elegant and well defined in the mouth. The texture and clarity of flavor is just gorgeous with laser like focus and fine, austere tannins that drive the long, precise finish. This just got better as the night wore on. 94pts
