(from a parcel purchased in 1909; ~30% whole clusters). This too possesses enough wood and menthol to fight a bit with the more elegant and equally ripe dark berry liqueur, earth and cassis aromas. The opulent, round and very suave middle weight flavors possess both good volume and solid mid-palate density before culminating in a relatively refined if slightly austere finish that offers very good depth as well as fine length. This is also going to require at least moderate patience. (90-92)/2022+

Wine Spectator

Macerated cherry, raspberry, wild herb and earth notes are matched by a supple texture, lively acidity and a dense matrix of tannins. All the components are here, but this will need a few years to knit together. Shows fine balance and intensity.
