93 Points

Thursday, February 7, 2013 - I figured this wine would be in a rough place right now but wanted to open one now to decide if I should bid on some in an upcoming auction. Very young and straw colored. Medium bodied and tight upon opening. The wine opened some with aeration but then quickly closed the window again. Medium bodied, this wine has racy acidity and a great structure for aging which is not surprising given the producer, vineyard and vintage. Ruby red grapefruits assault the senses along with white peaches and honeysuckle. This is a wine to forget about for another 10 years unless given serious decanting time. Exciting to drink today while frustrating due to the closed nature of the wine during most of the evening. No doubt an extraordinary wine given some time. Unfortunately I did not win any at the auction but will enjoy the balance of this case in the future. 50+13+12+9+9=93+
