Friday, November 16, 2012 - A really special bottle of wine that's better on its own than with food. The arousing nose of prunes, black olive, and mint cookie dough leads to volumes of peppery, entertaining fruit, whose presence undulates and decreases over the course of a couple hours, but at its best lasts and lasts—shuffling confusedly and then reuniting as if choreographed—until the unripe bent of the mostly resolved tannins keeps it complex (and in-a-way, clean) but also leaves the finish less pleasurable than it could be.
