Hailing from a warm year, this smells heavy and raisiny, with crusty, toasty blackberry and plum scents. A wide, smooth palate shows soft but present tannins, while this tastes baked, with blackberry, loam and prune flavors. A toasty finish with a chocolate cake note confirms the wine's ripeness. Best enjoyed 2016–2022.
