"Ripe dark berries, vanilla and candied flowers on the pungent nose, with a minerally quality adding lift. Spicy and expansive on the palate, offering intense cherry and raspberry liqueur flavors and a hint of mocha. Becomes deeper and more broad with air and finishes with velvety tannins and a repeating floral pastille note that lingers with strong tenacity." Vinous 92/WE 93

Round, rich full bodied elegance, tannins are fairly well resolved and intergraded for an 09. Dark fruits, expresso coffee grounds, saddlewood, dark chocolate, violets, soft spice, nice use off oak that reveals a cinnamon /vanilla barrel toast good acidity and a long beautiful finish that lasts.

This opens with a butterscotch coffee bouquet. Was spectacular at first taste for me. Full bodied, balanced, very drinkable. After decanting, I expected that I would be updating my initial 9.3 to 9.4, but it didn't improve too much--remained just a little razor sharp on the finish. Still, I can't demote it. For $24 I'm hard pressed to come up with any bottle that compares. I looked back at past ratings and confirmed that this is indeed a top 10 or 15 for 2016 for me... so far.
