LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: Here too there is just enough reduction to push the notably ripe and mildly exotic aromas to the background. On the plus side the concentrated and caressing medium-bodied flavors possess good mid-palate fat that buffers the moderately firm acid spine on the saline-inflected finish. I like the complexity as well as the relatively refined mouth feel and this well-made effort should be approachable young if desired. Drink: 2022+. Outstanding.
