Here too there is enough reduction to flatten the fruit so decanting is in order if you're tempted to try one soon. There is fine power and richness to the very solidly structured big-bodied flavors that possess outstanding volume before terminating in a long and quite intensely austere finish that delivers impressive length if only average plus depth. Drink 2022+

Bright, dark red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, licorice and wild herbs, along with a smoky carbon suggestion. Densely packed and highly concentrated, with a firm tannic spine giving shape and definition to the fresh dark berry flavors. Plenty of stuffing here for balance but this very closed wine will probably need up to a decade of bottle aging to blossom.
