Terrific wine, and showing more mature than the 2003 was a few months ago. Great mineral and spice, zesty acidity, and tremendous backbone. Mid palate has gotten into a very approachable state, and I would now say that this wine is in a good drinking window.
Wow, incredibly concentrated juice that has gobs of sweet ripe fruit, an almost painful spiciness, licorice, mineral character. I actually had a hard time drinking this at first but it really became more balanced and mellow with some air. How they manage such extreme ripe fruit with ample acidity I don't understand.
Full effusive nose of candied fruit red fruit, herbs, black mineral and spice. Palate has medium-to-full bodied rich and plush fruit. Very bright profile. Yum. Racy acidity keeps an edge to the wine and the very ripe fruit. More herb and mineral with some flowers married to the red and black fruits. Stays bright into a medium+ finish. Huge amount of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Excellent stuff - if a little on the ripe side of the spectrum.
