This deep ruby/plum-hued effort offers lots of chocolate laced red and black fruits, smoked earth, tobacco leaf, and truffle notes. Full-bodied, rich, and nicely textured, it has some background oak that should integrate with 3-4 years of bottle age, and it’s going to have a 15-year or longer drink window.

Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine is a little broader, expanding across the mid-palate and unfolding its wings to show a focused wine with structuring tannins. The finish lingers with a mineral expression and kiss of alcohol on the aftertaste. By the time this is officially released, the soft herbal tones may minimize their presence in the wine.
