Hitting the palate with full-bodied richness, it brings plenty of richness and depth, yet I love its purity of fruit as well as its precision and length on the palate. The tannins are still present yet nicely integrated, and this can be enjoyed today or cellared for a solid 15-20 years. It's a gorgeous bottle of wine.

The wine has an expressive nose with a firm core of dark fruit, showing dense concentration of elegant florals and integrated oak spices. The full-bodied palate is clean and correct with a line of minerality through the mid-palate that is balanced by the naturally plush and generous fruit, ending with a long and contemplative finish. 2,188 cases produced.- AM

Aromas of burnt coffee, leaf, apple and spice lead to chocolatey flavors. Coffee notes linger on the warm finish. The tannins bring a grainy feel, needing some time to stretch out. Best after 2023.
