Friday, October 19, 2012 - 8.5/10 - Pop and poured, still very young but already a great wine. Lovely black cherry, blackcurrant, chocolate, and and charcoal/pencil lead. Tannins are velvet smooth and sweet. Acidity is good and matches up well against all the flavours and the rather thick layer of tannins. The tannins, while heavy, were never jarring and felt like a heavy velvet cloak cloaking the beauty beneath. Cellaring the rest but it will be hard to resist. Thank goodness for the 03s in the meanwhile.
