Here the equally cool yet ripe nose is much spicier while displaying notes of mostly dark fruit, sandalwood and a whiff of jasmine tea. The super-sleek, intense and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors brim with minerality on the classy and sneaky long finale. This is like rolling small pebbles around in the mouth and the associated salinity adds a sense of lift to the finish. Good stuff. Outstanding.
