Iconic, Inspirational, Electric. A sensory overload but not in an over-extracted, phony way - just in such a dense, pure and decadent sense.

It's massive but with a rapier-like precision of cool and eucalyptus-fresh Cabernet that takes your breath away.

It has a very defined and ridiculously long finish, and I cannot wait to drink this in 15 years or so. A finer more Bordeaux-like perfection than 2009, it is quite humbling actually.
