Tasting Notes

Full medium-deep red. Full-blown aromas of cooked strawberry, mocha, menthol, brown spices and prune, with mineral and marzipan notes emerging with air. Then almost shockingly penetrating and delineated on the palate, conveying an impression of thrust without weight. Strawberry and raspberry flavors are complicated by a hint of exotic fruits. The wine's very firm tannic spine will require at least a few years of additional aging after this still-backward wine is released next spring. I may be underrating this wine today. From 100% michet clone, replanted by Mascarello mostly between 1983 and 1988 at a very dense 6,000 plants per hectare, with a second part of the vineyard replanted in 1993 and 1996.
