"The wine is beautifully vibrant on the nose, which jumps from the glass in a red fruity blaze of cherries, cranberries, stony minerality, a touch of orange peel, violets, fresh thyme and lovely spice tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is fullish, tangy and very transparent, with excellent intensity of flavor, a good chassis of modest tannin, excellent focus and grip and a very long, nascently complex finish. This is very classic in profile, in contrast to the riper and more muscular 2015 version, and it should age long and gracefully. 2017-2040."
