The color of the 2012 is as fresh and bright as the day it was put to barrel. Fresh blackberry syrup, fresh ground black pepper and fresh thyme dominate the aroma. The mouth is densely flavored, plush, and succulent. The wine is as immediately appealing as the 2009 was but has the structure to outlive it by years. The morning after having drunk it recently at home, my glass was stained dark purple and the aromas still lingered.
