Just lightly wood aged, this ripe wine from the fine 2010 vintage is opulent and generous as well as firmly structured. Tropical fruits come through the toast and steely edge, broadening and giving the wine great richness and density. At the end, the wine brings out acidity and a tight texture that promises aging. Drink from 2017.
