Vinturi - smoked meat/bacon, grilled and wilted herbs, tapenade, black pepper, coriander and roasted almond nose. A PFG meal.. Very composed/integrated.
Round, plush middle-weight in the mouth. Beautiful mid-palate flesh and density, with smoked meat and herb "inner-mouth perfume". Really saturated flavor pixel count - grainy. Acid/tannin structural synergy builds slowly to ultimately impede flavor flow in the finish, but this is brilliant for a middling vintage. I'd guess this will continue to improve for at least another 3-4 years and drink well for many more..
