...This has always been such an impressive wine, but it has also always been a Cos that is determined to have a long life...It has a deep garnet core, broody and tight, touches of black olive, chimney soot, dusty bureau and scorched earth. Very well defined. The palate is full-bodied with a dense, robust structure, a firm tannic frame that will see this comfortable through 30+ years. Masculine, a clenched fist of a wine and yet there is undoubtedly great balance and focus with notes of blackberry and pain grille. Powerful and broad-shouldered on the finish, it opens wonderfully in the glass. Approaching maturity, you could pop this now but I'd prefer to wait another 2-3 years. Drink 2012-2030+. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)
