Rich, concentrated and full-bodied, it's densely textured and packed with notes of blackberries, asphalt, black olives and dried spices. The oak is always in the background and actually adds an element of freshness to a wine that might otherwise seem heavy. The wine's considerable tannins are fine-grained and should soften nicely with age, as they already turn almost silky on the finish. Cellar this outstanding effort for 3-4 years and drink it over the next couple of decades. - Joe Czerwinski

Opening with a dense thicket of brambly berries imbued with Middle Eastern spices and mocha-like oak characters, this leads to a palate that's rich and round with a bit of heat from the alcohol. The tangy fruit and chiseled, taut tannins, however, save the day. This is a monster of a wine that shouldn't be touched anytime soon. Drink 2025–2035. - CHRISTINA PICKARD
