Absolutely gorgeous nose, with plum, Indian spices and blackberry. Full-bodied, with lots of dark chocolate, spices and vanilla. This is so young. Wonderfully silky and refined. I always loved the mint, berry and spice character in this wine and the layers of fruit and fine tannins. Amazing...Best from 2009 through 2020... Wine Spectator

3L - Excellent bottle, took some time to open but was generous when it did. Concentrated over ripe fruits with acidity and mouth coating silkiness.

Beautiful nose. All that was lacking is in mouthfeel and palate presence. Great wine, dumb criticism.
