This wine has aged extremely gracefully. Tight and austere a few years ago, it has mellowed completely. It still has a classy and firm structure, but has softened and opened. ​Complex nose of flowers, wood, macerated dark berries and dark currants, prunes, charcoal. Savory, round, beautifully textured in the mouth, with good acidity. Lingering finish with earthy and savory notes at the fore. - HK 2017-10-27
