"Bright dark red. Restrained but very pure aromas of raspberry, smoky minerals, and game. Viscous, round, and generous in the mouth but with terrific fruit intensity and balancing energy... A wonderfully concentrated wine with outstanding spicy depth and palate-straining perfume."

A more deeply pitched nose is composed by notes of dark berry fruit, spice, earth, and a hint of animale. There is obvious minerality to the rich, full and naturally sweet broad-scaled yet relatively elegant flavors that are solidly structured, muscular, and wonderfully intense while delivering superb complexity on the hugely long and moderately rustic finish. This gorgeous effort is indisputably built for long-term aging.
