The producer's high mark for excellence, this opaque, thickly tannic wine begs for more time in the bottle. Bold, it hones in on a full-bodied weight of black raspberry, tobacco, cassis and black pepper. Complex, with touches of clove and dark chocolate, it can be enjoyed now, though it will cellar well through 2021.
