Leather, rose, blue flower, balsamic notes, mineral, black cherry, baking spice and thyme are just some of the sensations offered by this breathtakingly gorgeous wine that boasts power and finesse. At 10, it's still shockingly youthful and vibrant, with great depth and balance, but it still has years to go. Drink 2020–2044.
