DESCRIPTION

Very mild bricking. There is a hint of menthol to the beautifully spicy and airy aromas that have transformed into entirely secondary fruit notes (though no sous-bois) that are nuanced by soil and game-inflected nuances. The medium-bodied, sweet and vibrant flavors are underpinned by evident minerality on the delineated, pure and saline finish where a hint of acid tang appears. For my preference this has peaked though it should have no trouble holding at this level for another decade, perhaps even a bit longer. I do worry that it may eventually begin to dry out but that should not be a short-term concern. Tasted several times over the years with largely consistent results.  Burghound 92
