Nuanced weedy and smoky aromas evolve into a rich melange of pipe tobacco, briar, menthol and and intense aromas of freshly picked flowers. The fruit is a touch pruny and graced with spicy cardamom accents. This is really dominated by flowers and tobacco. Rich and broad yet transparent on the palate, this floods the mouth with flavors. A bit meaty at times, then turning fruity with flavors of black cherry and Italian plums that lead to a long, superbly complex finish that reveals great spicy nuance, hints of strawberry seeds, earth, and forest floor . The tannins are really nicely ripe here, important but unimposing and lend this a fine, almost silky texture. This is the best example of this wine I’ve ever had and by a notable margin. 94pts
