This was superbly fresh on the nose with a touch of dried chocolate frosting adding sweetness to the dried strawberry fruit. There are layers of forest floor, seashell, tobacco, spice and herb notes here with flourishes of salad greens, dried asphalt, maduro tobacco and fresh porcini mushroom. On the palate this is bright and deep with a huge core of sour cherry fruit and brisk menthol top notes. Amazingly fresh and youthful with the dark fruit edged in a subtly sweet apricot glaze tone with hints of espresso bean, green herbs, spices, sandalwood and a huge rose nose all coming to a crescendo on the deep, long, exciting finish. A monumental wine that required coaxing and patience to allow it to reveal all it has. Still amazingly youthful. 2009-2035 95pts.
