The deep ruby colored 2017 Optimus opens with aromas of fresh fruits—wild blackberries, crushed blueberries and sour cherries—along with loamy earth, touches of cured meats, saline and olives, very fresh and crunchy on the nose. Medium to full-bodied and silky, it has great intensity and interplay of red, black and blue fruits with spices and savory touches. It has a very classy frame of finely pixelated tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and lifted. This shows excellent restraint! It’s drinking beautifully now but will reward another 3-5 years in the cellar.
