YES! Served after the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Carlisle JBV's, this indeed showed some welcome evolution in the most positive way! Tannins had begun to take the backseat and the overall impression was that of a wine IN BALANCE! Everything fits perfectly together. Notes not dissimilar to the other vintages and not yet tertiary. Rich, intense, balanced, complex with a lovely mix of primary and secondary flavours and as mentioned, beautifully soft tannins.
