This features a heavy nose of dark cherries in alcohol, macerated flowers, and hints of ash, playdoh, and integrated menthol notes. The fruit builds and dominates the aromatics. Silky on entry with really captivating integration and wonderfully fresh and succulent cherry fruit that is amply backed up with contrasting notes of licorice and earth. The tannins start to build on the mid-palate as the wine quickly takes on a more powerful feel. With time in the glass this gains focus and excellent length with a freshly cut fruit tone that lingers on the finale. This is super stuff, absolute classic and remarkably youthful. I would say give this another 3 to 5 years to catch it at peak. 94pts
