Exotic and expressive, but also very young. Tasted at Vinous map event.

Fruits are fresh and run juicy to dry. Black plum, blackberries, dark raspberries, bit of stewed strawberries, tannins are dusty/gritty, leather, spicebox, baking spices, dark powdery minerals, good acidity, balance and finish. Check it again in 8-10 years but good for 20 years.

The nose leads you down a path to oak and very ripe fruit notes, however the palate is pure, precise like a howitzer shell of tannin and structure. Should be killer in 10+ years as the palate is fresh, with very good balance and acidity. Complexity with age should increase the score and my interest but right now it needs time.

A true powerhouse. Under the thick-as-port black fruit is a brooding minerality and a haunting smoky, loamy earth character. This is a HUGE vintage. Behemoth. Gargantuan. Complex and long on the palate, with a definite "whoa" factor on the finish.

Can't wait to see what 20 years will do to this wine. Even though I am giving a great review it is like taking a pizza out of the oven to soon.
