Here the wood influence is very subtle and easily allows the fresh, ripe and pretty aromas of pure red berries, jasmine tea, hoisin and anise to be appreciated. The delicious, intense and solidly concentrated medium weight plus flavors possess a lovely inner mouth perfume while exhibiting outstanding length on the moderately austere, muscular and hugely long finale where a touch of minerality slowly emerges. This is also very impressive though once again, extended patience will be imperative if you wish to see this beauty at its peak.
