Note from memory. Tons of pepper on the nose together with some blackberries, light bretty rubber and a little meat. Decent palate with a very dry, high acidity. Medium body, medium intensity and a good long finish. Felt very dry and a bit tightly knit, hard to say if this needs more time to fatten up or if it's not enough filling there from the beginning. 1 bottle to go in 2-3 years.
Took delivery today of the case I bought and just had to open a bottle. It is tight and fresh, marrying amazing mineral energy and drive with the purest, ripe Syrah fruit; aromatic and peppery with a note of red meat and a pleasing creamy quality; very good length. Very attractive already with (spicy) food if decanted; should be at peak from 2017-2020. Excellent wine, great QPR. Complete unchanged on day 2, which confirms that it needs a few years in the cellar to reach its apogee.
