This is a serious, concentrated wine that is full of generous fruit and structure. Alongside this weight, there is a lighter, juicier side from vibrant acidity. The main thrust though is concentrated tannins that are still developing. The aftertaste is dense and shows the wine needs to age. Drink from 2019.
