Bright, full, deep ruby. Very sexy, musky nose conveys liqueur-like ripeness to the aromas of black fruits, licorice, menthol and minerals; a faint leesy quality adds nuance without distracting from the fruit. Plush, sweet, highly concentrated and seamless; this wine was a bit strict in the early going but today it really captures the creamy side of this vintage. Perhaps most impressive on the slowly building finish, which features suave tannins and a firming touch of graphite minerality. Really expands on the palate with air. Utterly delicious today but capable of holding for at least another decade. (14.8% alcohol) (Stephen tanzer, Vinous, July 2019)

Ripe (as in VERY ripe), jammy and not my thing any longer. This will have plenty of fans in the "RMP camp". I'm much preferring what Austin P. as head winemaker has been making the last few vintages.
