Wednesday, November 2, 2011 - Lightly smoky at first but after a few minutes in the glass it really starts to get up and boogie. It perceptively gains perfume and sweetness with fruits vacillating between red and black. There’s a big hit of aniseed along with freshly grated ginger and some sweet earth. It has a real plush mouthfeel with incredible density and is chewy and has masses of dry extract booting in towards the finish. For its sheer size this wine has remarkable vibrancy, thanks in no small part I suspect to the abundant acidity. A delicious wine that is a joy to drink now but probably another 15 years away from its eventual apogee.
