A full-bodied beauty opaque purple in color with notes of cassis black raspberry licorice and camphor some smoky oak is also present in this super-intense uber-concentrated wine which transcends the appellation. Drink it over the next decade. A sleeper of the vintage.

This sports some toasty punch with dark fig blueberry sauce and blackberry notes laced with ample toast. A hefty style but nicely rounded. -J.M.

Yields were just 25 hls/ha. Aged in 60% new French oak and 40% one-wine-old barrels. Intense herb soy and licorice nose indicates earth and concentration. A generous entry and mid-palate of blackberry injected with an abundance of sweet black licorice. Firm and linear tannins will make this a great early drinker for those who favor luscious fruit and spice. Drink 2013 to 2023. Tasted twice.
