Floral. Roses. Wet earth, mid season cherries, sour cherries, violets. Expansive and expanding. Sweet cherries. So lacey and delicate. Sick inner mouth florals and such vivid fruit. Needs maybe 45 more minutes.

Awesome nose. Wide open. Bright mid season cherries, licorice, spice, floral, sweet cherry, the palate is like velvet, sweet fruit, limestone, licorice, floral, fruit is pillow like, gentle yet sweet. This is insane. It’s so ethereal and sweet.

after 1 hour is this heavenly. Sweet fruit. Amazing aromas. Stunning.

Wow. This is about as spectacularly delicious a burgundy as I’ve had.

Nose is the best pure cherry. Cherry lipstick a bit. Flawless. ... an hou in lovely florals.

Palate is perfect. Ripe cherry but bursting with firm cherry brightness. Wow. Hint of cherry licorice. Spice.

So good I could drink a case. I’d die. But it would almost be worth it.

At 40 minutes getting some depth. You will be tempted to guzzle this in the first 20 minutes. It’s that good. But that is the temptation of SATAN and you should resist it. Wait for an hour at least.

Finish has some cranberry.

This is crazy in that it’s so good young but the decanting improvement suggests this could be better than delicious and very very good as it ages.
