I opened a first bottle of this in Rust, and felt it was reaching maturity, but perhaps missing some length – kinda ¾ length? A second bottle in August showed better persistence and perfume, so hopefully it’s coming out of its shell! Pale-medium garnet. Notable earthy, spiciness with perfumed cherry fruit starting to take a back seat behind emerging tertiary complexity. Tannins becoming silky. Perhaps at its peak in 3 years? Will keep sampling periodically.
