Ruby. It’s complex, and the flavors have grown tall and fine. Jam and oil essences accented in cherry pit and timut peppercorn notes, tar and musky orchid with subtle cassia, all in a plush texture that only seems yielding but is actually spicy and frisky. The tannins come through and bring a meaty, earthy flourish. Predictably for its vintage, it finishes with more nuances than one can find mineral descriptors for. Now – 2030.
