This is another gorgeous wine from Holdredge, already elegant yet full of authority and aging potential. Flavors are like a fruit compote of dark cherry and strawberry, along with a complex mix of earthiness, spiciness, and an ethereal violet-like floral note. Beautifully balanced and drinking well out of the box. Hard to say how long to hold this one for its "peak" since it's so delicious already. I'm sure it will be fresh and forward for at least another 5 years. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. - HK 2016-11-16
