Broll is showing some nice finesse here, even though it's still stylistically a big wine. Its leathery, savory and earthy notes really linger on the lengthy finish, all brick and tar and still, even after all this time in bottle, tight. Though 15.5%, the wine doesn't taste hot and could develop for another 2–3 years to come.
