Evolved character, but has bright fruit and youthful acidity. The aromatics are superb; menthol, ripe fruit, fresh red fruit, dead leaves, tabacco and a hint of lead pencil. It retains the 15% alcohol well, but although I am particular fond of high-acid wine, the acidity is almost too high at times (perhaps with rare meats). Although the structure does not live up the nose, it is a very good wine and a decent value. (first rated higher)
