Chunky and clunky on the nose, and unlike previous vintages, this one requires more patience and a willingness to overlook some flaws. For starters, the wine has a milky nose. It's frankly gaseous and bretty. But give it time to unwind and blackberry and standard plum flavors step in. The finish is easygoing, but all along there's a narrowness to it. Good but not as good as in the past.
