Bouquet is full of cedar, cherries, green pepper and violets as well as lavender.
On the palate, the wine is of medium density and of extreme balance. The mouthfeel is elegant, but it still possesses some green tannins that are mostly integrated in the juicy mouthfeel and strong red berries flavors.
Long and toasty finish with some vanilla and toast.
Now – 2027
Excellent wine. Don’t know how @james.suckling can rate it at 95, but it’s a delicious wine that will gain complexity with further cellaring.
Drink now (for pure instant joy) or keep for a more mature and complex experience in the future.
