Monday, March 9, 2009 - In a place now where it could be overlooked, but get some air into the wine, match it with some slightly fatty protein and cuddle up to it over an hour or two and you’ll get where its coming from. Pure earthy nose flecked with iron, dried flowers and a sweet vinous perfume. It is relatively compact and linear with built around a rigid mineral spine. The 96’s don’t yet possess a sweet heart rather the fruit fans out from the spine, maintaining the linear nature of the wine but buffering the high acidity with a gently sweet sheath of glycerol. This is a wine that is far from ready but was quite ethereal.
