Another tremendous showing! It is difficult to describe how rounded, balanced, layered, elegant, and delicious this wine is. Many $100+ CdPs do not deliver comparable complexity, power, and sophistication. A complete package! Ridiculous value! 94-95.
Decanted and let breath for a few minutes before consuming. Very delicious with notes of dark cherries, plums, and black raspberries in the mouth. The nose is fragrant. Really full of pleasure right now and headed for a great future.
Lovely, rich aroma, but too intense to drink without food. Crawfish etouffee was a good match, as it battled valiantly for dominance over the palate. (The wine still won.) Lots of tannin and generally felt too young; not one I plan to open again for a while. Even on the second day it was a bit too intense.
