Somewhat shy nose initially, but it really opened up into a gorgeous cedar bouquet after a few minutes in the glass. The palate is still immature, but it seems to have all the elements of a future superstar.
The nose was so shy that I had a hard time getting the profile. The palate was fresh, silky and rich in flavors. Still quite tannic, but definitely a lot of potential. I'm not I see the $1000 value in this wine right now, but it may just be that I don't have enough experience to predict how great wines develop over time.
