Densely packed but juicy and penetrating, with terrific definition and a slatey coolness to the dark fruit and menthol flavors. (I was reminded of a Spanish wine from llicorella soil.) For all its clarity and perfume, this very young wine is already quite silky. Finishes savory, firm and long, with fine tannins dusting the entire palate. Lovely perfumed lift (from the cabernet franc?) contributes to the impression of grip. Just 350 cases made, from seven fermentations with different clones.
