The gorgeous nose jumps from the glass in a mix of black cherries, plums, grilled meats, woodsmoke, a very complex base of dark soil tones, a touch of nutskin and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and sappy at the core, with impeccable balance, bottomless depth, fine-grained tannins and stunning length and grip on the still quite youthful finish. This wine is potentially quite opulent in style, but today, this is all beautifully harnessed behind a completely seamless, but substantial structure. A legend in the making!

The nose is dominated by the new oak at the moment so it is difficult to ascertain the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, well-delineated opening. There is a spicy tincture here, almost as if someone had put a touch of chili oil into the vat! Great tension and vivacity here, the finish has the concentration to suggest that is will subsume that oak in time, but you need to wait around 10-15 years. - Neal Martin

Highly complex aromas of raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant blueberry, iron and dried flowers. Sappy on entry, then quite backward in the middle palate despite hinting at superripeness, with a crunchy blueberry flavor joined on the end by almost medicinal notes of red licorice and menthol. With its chewy, mouth-saturating tannins, this is almost austere today. But the extremely long, dry finish leaves the mouth vibrating. As in most successful vintages, this wine is likely to enjoy a long evolution in bottle. 94+

A dense and serious nose displays notes of wood toast, black cherry, spice, earth, game and once again plenty of sauvage character. The toast is also present on the broad-shouldered middle weight plus flavors that abound... A dense and serious nose displays notes of wood toast, black cherry, spice, earth, game and once again plenty of sauvage character. The toast is also present on the broad-shouldered middle weight plus flavors that abound with palate coating dry extract that also serves to buffer the markedly firm tannic spine on the powerful but not rustic finish where a mild hint of warmth is discernible. This is also noticeably muscular and will likewise require an extended stay in a cool cellar.
