This is distinctive, with lots of showy pain d'épices and blackberry reduction offset by roasted apple wood notes and a strong graphite spine. Shows plenty of flesh through the finish, featuring extra linzer torte and boysenberry notes that course along, with nice buried grip. Best from 2014 through 2025.
Beautiful aromas of espresso, dried fruits and hints of prunes. Full-bodied, with velvety chewy tannins and a fruity finish. Try in 2016.
This is one of the finest wines I have tasted from this highly regarded terroir that has rarely been exploited to its maximum potential. Loads of chalk dust intertwined with sweet kirsch, black currants, licorice and camphor jump from the glass of this full-bodied wine, which has terrific fruit intensity, lots of glycerin, a lavish richness and a long, heady finish with light to moderate tannin. Give it 1-2 more years of bottle and drink it over the following 15.
