This is a powerhouse of wine, sturdy and well-built though reaching approachability in the glass. Tobacco, leather and dark chocolate-cherry flavors intermingle around a subtle suggestion of vanilla as sizably puckering tannins ask for air. Black pepper and clove dot the landscape. Enjoy best 2024 through 2034.
