Interesting sense and bravado to this wine… decided, somewhat codified and shy, but that’s just what makes it a gem… full narrative and composition, poetic intro and conclusion, affirming its identity repeatedly to the sipper, making you take your time with it so you miss nothing. Soft texture with pronounced drum rolls of cherry and blackberry, spice and herb, dusty olfactory and palate rally the wine into more engaging and unique sensory rhetoric. I’d lay it down for a few years, as to let the more wooing and symphonious qualities appear. Right now, though, its assertiveness isn’t any kind of interference or intrusion. The current language of this bottle is cinematic and entrapping. A highlight in my month, my year. Certainly.
