Dried herb, currant and cassis mingle around a soft well-integrated texture of lengthy tannins and classic oak, the body full and fleshy. VIRGINIE BOONE

Aromatic, sensual and super-expressive, the 2016 has a lot going on. Cedar, dried flowers, espresso, dried cherry and menthol all grace this compelling, promising wine that shows terrific energy and plenty of persistence. -- Antonio Galloni

Iodine and currant character with hints of sage and other herbs. Medium body. Spreads across the palate. This is still a little tight. Give it a year or two. Try after 2020.

Sappy kirsch and blackberry compote flavors exhibit floral lift, with tobacco and mineral streaks enlivening the finish. Well-toasted and dense, but shows good energy overall. Best from 2021 through 2026. — JM

It has a wonderful earthy/forest floor character, medium body, ripe yet present tannins, and a good finish. Including 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, drink it any time over the coming decade or more.
