    I'm not that bullish on this wine. It's good, but it's not at the level that the 2013 and 2015 (or even the 2016). A lovely candied-cherry-driven nose (that's not over the top), with a clear confected sweetness. A little rose underneath all that fruit. The palate is a clear continuation of the nose, but strikes me as distinctly candied. Mostly cherries as far as the fruit profile goes, and a bit of aldehydes put this soundly in the treble register. Somewhat lacking in acidity, this doesn't come across as very complex right now. I'd hope that this will develop complexity with time, as it certainly doesn't feel that way today. (90 pts.)
