Moderate reduction presently dominates the nose and I would strongly suggest decanting this if you're going to try a bottle young. There is excellent volume and richness to the beautifully well-detailed and intense flavors that also exude a fine minerality on the powerfully long but impeccably well-balanced finish where a touch of wood appears. This will need at least 6 to 8 years of cellar time and 12 to 15 will be required for it to realize its full potential as this is a concentrated 2011. AM
