This is a dense, juicy and satisfying wine from start to finish, featuring finely textured, soft tannins around remarkable structure. Cinnamon and clove persist through wilder elements of pencil lead and ripe cassis, showing the appellation's propensity for hitting you from one side with power, and from the other side, ever so discreetly, grace.
