Almost two years since my last note (and this is a day 2 glass). Translucent ruby in the glass, with a reticent nose that hints at red fruits & menthol.
Tannic and tightly coiled, even on day 2 - this is still a youngster at 15 years. Decent acidity and a lengthy finish - I do like the potential here, as all the elements appear to be in place and are relatively harmonious right now, but for my palate this needs additional time in bottle.
Bright cherry with great mouthfeel and bright acidity. Violets on the nose and a deftness about it. Had completely resolved tannins so no worries about drinking now, yet it will hold for years longer and may even improve more.
