Mine is bin end stock, but it was still perfect. Bottle breathed 3 hrs, and consumed well from 7-11pm, old bordeaux St. Julien style and pronounced nose, cassis, tea leaf, dark choco, vanilla oak, florally violet. Lingering acidity, silky smooth mouth filling tannins, powerful black & red fruits, liquorice. Length is very long.
In the glass, bricking is obvious. Not a very expressive nose at first pop and reticent after a few hours. Nose of minerals, blackberry, and a bit of desert underbrush. In the mouth, elegant throughout; velvety approach and in perfect balance. Wow. Ends with just a bit of acidity, and gently reminds you of its presence for 20+ seconds. Cellared correctly since release.
