(from a 1.1 ha parcel of 55+ year old vines). Once again there is subtle wood present on the spicy, cool and beautifully well-layered and slightly more elegant nose of ripe dark currant, plum, violet and humus scents that also reflect a note of herbal tea. There is a sleek mouth feel to the solidly concentrated and mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that exhibit outstanding length on the markedly firm finale that is also impeccably well-balanced. Ample patience is once again advised. Highly recommended. 94/2026+
