The nose is so ineffably pure that it is guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye. In a strange way it reminds me of a top Armand Rousseau with its awe-inspiring transparency. The palate is ethereal - divine balance, a gentle grip, a saline edge and poise on the finish that takes your breath away. Iron fist in a velvet glove, etc. This is surely legend in the making. - Neal Martin

Highly complex aromas and flavors of candied raspberry cherry strawberry mocha cinnamon and pepper. Sweet sappy and saline with terrific inner-palate freshness and energy. Impressively rich chewy wine with outstanding perfumed persistence. Leaves the taste buds vibrating.

A ripe but cool and highly complex nose of moderately wooded aromas of violets cassis black berry and anise hints. The superbly rich and velvety broad-shouldered flavors possess outstanding size weight and mid-palate concentration that coats the palate with dry extract and enrobes the firm tannic spine to the point that it is more of a background element than usual. There is excellent energy and precision to the dusty pure and driving finish. This well-balanced effort should require between 15 and 18 years of cellar time to be at its best. Drink: 2025+
