Highly expressive and moderately mature aromas explode from the glass to reveal dark fruit, earth and spice elements that lead to intense, full-bodied, robust and impressively muscular flavors, all wrapped in a wonderfully velvet-textured and mineral-inflected finish of superb length. This has nearing its peak window of drinkability though I will continue to hold my few remaining bottles for a few more years first as there is just enough tannin remaining to suggest that a bit more development potential remains.

Rich ruby. Dense. Very subtle and rich. Fully alive. Racy and still quite youthful. Muscular and not yet at its peak. A great hint of things to come.
