Imported by Wine Cellars International, Briarcliff Manor NY.
Deep ruby. Pork-belly, purple iris and blueberry compote on the nose and the palate is polychromatic like Gorecki. Ampy fruit power with a maple twist; from a mostly clay site whose water retentiveness would have saved it in this ‘irrigate or die’ vintage. A big wine by any measure in any year and broader still in ’03. Your hand in mine stills the thunder; hold my hand while I taste it again. Now – 2020+.
