Firm and focused, this young wine has miles to go. It opens with bright raspberry and cherry fruit, then puts on bulk in the midpalate, adding lovely orange-peel highlights. Drinking well this young, it has the structure and depth to add many more layers over the next decade or longer. Drink now through 2030 and beyond.
