(with thanks to Dr. Reed Day). An impressively fresh and solidly complex nose where the toasty oak that this displayed early on has largely, if not completely, been absorbed, allowing the aromas of earth, plum, mocha and spicy black pinot fruit to now have center stage. The incredibly rich and opulent flavors have become more restrained as some of the baby fat has melted away though the original notes of tea and leather and still present. Overall, this remains a big, rugged and borderline rustic effort that possesses a powerful, indeed muscular finish that simply goes on and on. One thing that is clear though is that my initial suggested drinking window of 2013+ was overly optimistic and I have moved it back five years and even that may be on the wishful thinking side as well..
