Showing bright black cherries, pomegranate, violets and licorice, this is a very harmonious and deceptively powerful wine. This bottling shows power and balance to high degree, and its toned, sleek muscularity emerges in the pure fruit, balance and focused acidity on the palate. Its smooth and integrated mouthfeel make the wine light on its feet for such a complex, tannic and concentrated bottling. Dark cherries, violets and "sottobosco" combine to give this wine the fruit foundation that will sustain the huge tannins through a long life. The finish is bright and smooth, with ripe and full tannins, and ends long and smooth with notes of espresso, spices and cherries.

Wine SpectatorA rich version, boasting floral, macerated cherry, plum, menthol and tobacco flavors. The tannins are dense, but this remains vibrant and elegant overall, finishing with spice and earth notes. Exhibits excellent harmony and length. Best from 2018 through 2035. 1,450 cases made.
