Always interesting to drink these guys in their youth. Dark opaque purple, glass staining, slow legs. Then it's all very woody, with the fruit in the background, and Raynolds was absolutely right that it gained spiciness after a bit of air. What he calls Asian spice I think its a hoisin-like flavor. Went especially well with wife's pork chop. Very concentrated too but old world. I can see how this is one of those estates known for a consistently solid product and not striving to be flavor of the moment. 2 more to go!
