There is outstanding intensity to the precise and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that brim with a fine minerality before concluding in an impressively well-balanced, persistent and harmonious finish. Note however that here too patience will be required as this will need 12 to 15 years to realize its full development potential.
