Parfymert, nesten floral. Fullmoden og rustrød. Tørkede bringebær med brunmineralsk og lang finish. Om man skal trekke må det bli for konsentrasjonen. Men hadde den hatt mer ville den ikke vært like deilig nå.
This is ROCKING right now - this has that Something-From-Nothing vibe going on, with the translucent liquid powering out some incredible aromas - BOOF. There are some cherries and some sweet-black fruit aromas - really treading a nice line between elegant and feral-funky-sweet-decaying nose. There is still quite a bit of fat on the bones here but it is all relative - the frame feels as though this should be feather light and dancing on the tongue. It must may get there - this is superb. 2007s are really clicking into place.
Looking at my note from 2013 - this showed very similarly tonight. Drinking well with a couple of hours of air. Red fruited, transparent, elegant and mineral. Very 2008 on the palate. Hold or drink with a good decant. 91-92+
The story thus far with this wine is to leave it in a decanter for an hour before touching it. Straight out of the bottle this is lean and tight but later flourishes into an array of feral elements, with mushrooms, red fruit, dry soil spinning out of the glass. A beautiful colour...you won't see many clearer wines. With time this will be one stinky and earthy animal.
