Impressively expressive with black, earthy, concentrated fruit aromas that are still largely primary though there is now some secondary development beginning to show followed by fresh, rich, moderately structured flavors and excellent length. The structure is clearly beginning to soften and this should be at its best in 3 to 5 years and hold there for another 7 to 10. In short, this is a fine effort.
Another great showing for this wine bought at Acker Auctions. We carried this bottle all day, so it was at room temperature. We decanted and drank asap. It was gorgeous. Bright red fruits and leather on the nose, strong fruit on the attack and leather joining it for a long finish. Rebuy if I get the chance. This is not fading at all
