Opaque purple the nose reveals toasty oak minerals scorched earth an amalgam of black fruits plum and licorice. Smooth-textured opulent and full-flavored the oak is totally integrated and every element is in harmony. Give it 8-10 years in the cellar and drink it through 2030.

Juicy and gripping with modest flesh but good cut to the almost pinot-like red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes spicy and fresh. I'm not sure I would have guessed cabernet sauvignon. From a crop level of just 15 hectoliters per hectare owing to very small berries and clusters notes Baron. (A second bottle tasted later was distinctly lusher in the mid-palate and finished wonderfully broad and long.)
