The 170 acre Rocim estate has produced a serious, dense and powerful wine. It is rich, powered by blackberry and dark plum and damson flavors. The acidity that's there is enough to contrast with the ripe fruitiness while the tannins and layers of wood flavors both promise considerable aging. Drink from 2018.
