Crazy aromas of wild hyacinths, blueberries, rose petals, lilies, jasmine, incense, black plums and dark chocolate. Hints of earth and mushrooms, too. The complexity is off the scale. The palate is all about the acidity, which could be edgy enough to throw you off a cliff, but the seamless tannins and beautiful, long finish are also unmistakable in their beauty and finesse. A wine that makes you think. Better in 2021, but it is already a beauty.

Wine Spectator

This has drive and elegance, an ideal foil for the cherry, black currant, wild herb and mineral flavors. Shows energy and balance, though this will need time for all the elements to integrate fully. Offers a nice, chewy, licorice-tinged finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 25 cases imported.
