Big and modern, this has simmering aromas of turned earth, graham cracker, leather, plum and blackberry. It feels megasaturated but well balanced, with hugely ripe black-fruit, chocolate and toasted marshmallow flavors. Warm and nearly Port-like, this is full of toffee and fudge notes on the finish. It's a flashy, polished, 21st-century red wine.
