Purchased six on release and have been trying over the years. This bottle is certainly improved over previous years. Nice secondary notes developing, cedar, spice, tobacco. Improved over time and was drinking well at 2 hours. Finish is medium in length, and improved slightly over time. Overall a good wine if not slightly faded.
Potentially, this wine merits 94 points. Three hours after opening: The nose is really great, ethereal, fruity, concentrated, smooth. In the mouth, it is long, superbly complex, with the tannins still noticeable. So much enjoyable..
Extremely closed on the nose at first. Took about 2 hours in the decanter to open even slightly. Revealed hints of graphite, leather, dark fruit and herbs. Palate matched and was smooth integrated. Great balance. Still young, but getting ready.
