Decanted after the first sip for an hour, gettting rid of the depot. Pristine nose, a whole garden full of flowers, sweet and a bit green at the same time - impressive, could not get enough of it. But on the palate this seems not as open as in the nose, although it is excellent now - a lot of red and a bit blueberry fruit, roses, orange peel, sweet and full, a wonderful, light creaminess, quite some length. Perfect wine, enjoyed every sip. Considering it is still a bit tannic and has a lot of backbone this will go for another five years.
Dinner at L'Unita (L'Unita, Toronto, Canada): Medium-garnet colour. Aromas of roses, violets/potpourri, sandalwood, orange rind. Medium-full bodied, with truffles, orange rind, and dried dark fruit. Moderate-long finish, ~35-40s, with dark fruit and tar. Needs 3-5 years to hit its peak, but this is fantastic stuff. Drink 2010-2020.
All olive with a little tobacco and dried cherries. This wine screamed for food. Once we threw some spaghetti at it, it was enjoyable to drink. Not a sipper by itself. Ok finish of more olive, dark fruits, and leather.
