Made from 100% varietal grapes, the wine aged 22 months in 65% new French oak.This is a robustly crafted, powerfully concentrated experience, thick and hugely extracted in black fruit and black pepper. Leathery in texture, it has a fistful of oak that should settle down with cellaring. Enjoy best 2024 through 2034.
