    August 4, 2018 - Nose of dried crushed violets, cigar, eucalyptus. I was initially taken aback, it very much reminded me of an aged left-bank bordeaux. Very tight initially. We decanted and about 30 minutes later it was ripping. Beautiful amount of fruit on the palate; baked cherry, ripe plums, tart apricot, some herbs de provence and this unctuous quality akin to extravecchio balsamic. Ripping acidity. That's what took me most by surprise was the sheer amount of acidity this has. High acidity. Round texture, Full bodied, medium+ length, and drinking wonderfully. Interested to try this again in 5 years.
