($61) Deep red. Seductive bouquet of red and dark berries, garrigue and Asian spices. Silky and sweet, with deep but focused raspberry and blackberry flavors, gentle tannins and an impressively sappy finish. Gained brightness and precision with air, suggesting that this outstanding youngster will repay cellaring.

Cask SampleFresh and spicy but not much depth of fruit in the middle. Perhaps it will take on flesh? Tight and firm. Will probably end up quite elegant. Hard to assess. (JH)
A primal, electrically infused style w/ charged notes of lavender, blackberry, creamy cassis and pepper that range from spicy to supple w/ each sip. The wine is rich, powerful and crammed w/ fruit that really stretches its legs out on the finish. I found this style to be a bit more progressive, but I think it really has show-stopping potential and still remains a bit under the radar as far as the super cuvees are concerned
