The palate is full-bodied with ripe slightly chewy tannins very good weight certainly more complexity that recent vintages well defined towards the finish and coping with that alcohol adeptly. This is a better Potensac than in recent years but still a little "conservative" in style.

A touch austere, but the stuffing is there for cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2020. 16,666 cases made. — JM
