I've got one of these. I'll be happy to hear how it is. I wouldn't expect it to be very approachable now though - this being the year of the tannins and all, and this property being known for being tannic anyway. Tannin + tannin = yikes for now, probably yum in 10 years time. That's the formula I thought for myself based on generalities of vintage and producer, but would be happy to hear what it is actually like!
