When you have the opportunity to drink a wine like this I do not worry about infanticide because I might be a corpse when this is at its apex. Decanted 2.5 hours . Head spinning aromatics of flowers, spice , and plums. One should bottle a perfume with that nose. I always ask myself can the palate equal the nose and in this case the palate does exactly that. The palate seduces you with pure elegance despite the enormous concentration of fruit. Delicious flavors of perfectly ripe fruit that somehow takes great structure and turns it into silk. Tremendous density and energy that handles the vintage heat effortlessly. Most importantly the bottle was shared with my friend who made my wine journey in life possible, if that was factored into my rating this wine would score a 100.

A baby but already superb. Great complexity and detail on the nose - sweet and smokey. Fruit is ripe and concentrated but not heavy. Good, balanced acidity. Tannins are completely velvet.

2015 sample from the winery. Crazy aromatic of berry, herbs and spice. Palate is plush, silky tannins with a forever finish
