It starts out tight and backward on the palate but slowly opens with air. It’s full-bodied, opulent, and powerful, yet still stays light on its feet, balanced, and lively. It still needs another 2-3 years and is going to evolve for 15-20 years or more.

Savory, even austere, yet harmonious and complete. Best from 2022 through 2036. 2,250 cases made, 1,250 cases imported. — TM

Aromas of ripe berries, earth, spice and dried fruit, such as sultanas. Some vanilla, too. It’s full-bodied, deep and chewy. Big wine, but not completely overdone. Needs time to soften. Drink after 2021.
