Wine Spectator: 97 Points
This distinctive version leads with pine forest sweet bay leaf and savory notes with a core of steeped currant and bitter plum fruit plus ample tobacco and warm stone notes in the background. The finish is chiseled in feel with racy acidity taking just as prominent of a role as tannic grip. With range character and energy to spare this should cruise in the cellar. Best from 2025 through 2045. 2650 cases made.
