It is beginning to develop its tannins and the huge pure rich black fruit is coming up. But with its acidity its layers of wood flavors and its structure this is a wine which has years ahead of it.

Lush and chewy with pungent flavors of raspberry dark chocolate and exotic spices. Impressively aromatic in the mouth especially in light of the recent bottling. Finishes ripely tannic and quite long. This offers lovely fruit.
