Improved since last reviewed at an 88, 17 months ago. Metal and acid has faded some, and more depth is emerging. Now with a touch of smoke on top of the basic high-pitched character of the nose. Less tin on the palate and more length and body. Still finishes short to medium. Really good with lamb chops off the grill tonight. Even stood up to the Amora mustard.
