No doubt that this is a big, extracted, mature wine with heavy, mossy aromas, but in the midst are prune, shoe polish and toasty aromas that darken everything up. In the mouth, it's saturated and sticky, with tons of oak-based spice, pepper and baked-fruit flavors. The finish is chewy, earthy and baked; drink now through 2017.
