Fairly oaky on the nose with notes of nutmeg and vanilla over tight floral base notes. I found this to be woody and dull. On the palate, the wine felt flat and tense, badly needing some time in the cellar to calm down the hard, mineral-laden flavors. The fruit did emerge a bit on the finish, but even there the flavors were more on the spicy side, further reinforcing the oaky impression this wine made. I’ve had several vintages of this wine and expect this to improve, but this did not impress me that much. 85pts
