Double decanted for sediment then drunk over a few hours.On the nose, roasted rare game, bacon fat, white pepper, violets, olive tapenade, savory herbs, and a mix of red and dark syrah fruit. Expansive, yet only mid weighted on the palate. This has sap and breadth with terrific texture, with the tannins nearly fully resolved leaving a texturally supple, but by no means soft or flabby, frame. This has intensity with grace. Savory, more than fruit driven on the palate with more roasted meats, olive, pepper, herbs, and soil more than fruit. This is drinking about perfectly for me right now. Another terrific showing, and showing no signs of fading from my last TN in 2017. That said, I cannot think of any reason to hold this. It is shining and as good as it will ever be. An excellent example of mature Cote Rotie drinking at its apogee. Effortlessly delicious. 3/19/2021
