Rich, earthy and structured, with graphite, bacon and dense black fruit aromas that promise the wine will pack punch. With big, biting tannins, it does that. The palate is dark and tight, with coffee, mocha and tough berry flavors. Finishes dry, toasty and tannic; needs three-plus years and will cellar well through 2020.
