This is also redolent of a full-on oak treatment though there are at least some spice elements perceptible in the background of the intensely floral and plum suffused nose. There is even more volume to the big-bodied, intense and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess good energy on the palate coating finish. Like virtually all of the upper levels wines in this range of 2012s, the finish is very toasty and exhibits a trace of dryness. In short, this is certainly pretty but the balance isn't what it could be and it's far from clear that time will solve the problem. Moreover, this is one of those wines where it's too structured to enjoy young and it may dry out if held too long. My score offers the benefit of the doubt as does my suggested drinking window but it's frankly a question mark.
