Floral nose, rose petal, violet, and spicy stem. Sweet and smooth on entry. Slightly dry mid-palate. Not very long with slight warmth at finish. Pretty good balance. Light on its feet but put on more weight after a couple of hours. This is about finesse rather than power, easy to like. 3rd bottle in 6 months, no sign of it shutting down. This maybe the vintage with very little dumb phase. 92 pts.
This is an explosive young wine right now. The nose is filled with cherry, raspberry, cranberry, violets, wet limestone, and some dusty hints. On the palate this is rich and mouth filling while at the same time remaining elegant and sleek. It finishes with ripe berries coating the back palate and leaves you waiting for another sip. I think this needs several more years to really show its best, but it is quite delicious right now.
Violets, limestone and Vaccinium fruits integrate well in this young wine. The It holds together well all the way across the palette, though it seems like this will only get better for the next 10-15 years. Will become a fantastic wine.
This is not showing as well as the last bottle. Right after been poured, good nose but thin and lean. Decent balance but lack complexity and length. It does put on more weight and complexity over the 2 hours lunch, but never reach the same level experienced in previous bottle. Such is wine, each bottle has it's own process, even at such young age. Now I am all confused as to which vintage is better, 09' or 10' ?? 89-91 pts.
