A luminous garnet red color with touches of mahogany, faded pink-orange rim. Profound, hypnotic, endlessly suggestive nose: iron-rich reds, peony, epices, morel, horseradish, darjeeling oolong, sweaty saddle leather. A statuesque, silken texture, at once mighty and mystic: rose hips, morello cherry, forest red raspberry in deep green shade. A regal chassis of fruit, acidity and minerality. Tertiary, umami finish of grandiose dimension. An innate command on display and a thrilling wine, the depths of which can be measured in fathoms. A great ’85. Now – 2025+.
