This is now just beginning to reveal hints of secondary to the notably ripe yet still admirably fresh nose of mostly dark berries, earth, plum and violet scents. There is good richness to the round, delicious and markedly powerful medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a long if slightly warm finish that delivers excellent length. This is still on the way up though it's not so structured that it could not be enjoyed now and over the next 30 years, perhaps even longer. - Burghound, 2017
