(from a .24 ha parcel of 20+ year old vines planted in a mix of rock and sand). Mild reduction shaves the top notes from the otherwise spicy dark berry fruit and sandalwood-scented nose. The mouth feel of the overtly stony middle weight flavors is notably finer though they don’t possess the same size, weight and power, all wrapped in a strikingly well-delineated and intensely saline-suffused finish that delivers sneaky good length. This is a first-rate example of Reignots. (91-94)/2027+
