very great but miles away from being ready perfect fruit balance from the great 09 vintage it will still be around in 50-100 years i bet ! It is complex big rich fat substantial forget about it for years no joke! its for the kids or grand kids esp in large format if drinking now you need several hours decant breathing mammoth wine
Tasted this from a leftover bottle after 1 day. Dark purple. Awesome sweet perfume leaps out - of sandalwood and incense, purple and red fruits and orange blossoms, and some slight tar, woody briar, savoury animal components to round off a complete nose. Tight, structured and acidic on the palate but did not expect anything else of a 2009. Red and purple fruits still poking through with a long core of fruit finish. Hard to rate whether it will be great or just very good in times to come, but it will be a nice drink.
