Monday, June 16, 2014 - Initial greeness dissipated after 30m in the decanter. Tight up until the 1h mark.
Nose displayed clean aromas of cherries, cassis, cigar box, espresso, leather and chocolate.
On the pate this was fleshy, mineral, firm and powerful, but also elegant and refined. The fine tannins were present but in check with the lively acidity. The delicious, impressive finish lasted a minute+.
Wine of the year for me so far and one of the most impressive bottles I have tasted, made in a style I thoroughly enjoy. A wine to ponder upon.
