I hadn’t tried this in some years and time has been reasonably good to it. This most recent bottle did flash a hint of volatile acidity on the spicy nose where the mostly red berry fruit has now turned toward the secondary. There is better than average richness in the context of what is typical for the vintage to the well-delineated middle weight flavors that exhibit excellent minerality on the balanced, linear and focused finale. To my taste this is now basically ready though it should hold at this plateau for years.

Absolutely stunning. Deep, pure aromas of cassis, violets and vanilla are followed by rich flavors and silky texture. Everything is woven together by juicy acidity,with a cascade of berries on the finish.
