Earthy and structured, this opens with aromas of wet soil, porcini mushroom, leafy underbrush and raisin. On the palate, notes of bitter dark chocolate and nutmeg add depth to the stewed prune and black cherry flavors. It's tightly framed between firm tannins and surprisingly fresh acidity. Drink 2015–2025.
