Tasting note: This is notably ripe yet still fresh and quite pretty with violet, plum and black cherry liqueur aromas that are trimmed in plenty of earth. The big, powerful and solid-concentrated middle weight plus flavors have really deepened and broadened since I last saw this in barrel. While I would stop short of describing it as robust the tannic structure is quite firm and this is clearly built to last for another 20 years. An impressive effort that it best left in the cellar for another 7 to 10 years as it will require at least that long for the tannic spine to mellow. This is definitely a lovely effort with excellent potential because despite all of the size, weight and punch, there is an impeccable sense of balance.
