While intensely ripe on the nose, this beautifully balanced Bordeaux-style blend offsets luscious fruit with dazzling acidity and a rigid frame of fine tannins. Black plum, cherry and currant flavors are succulent but pristine, penetrating deeply through a long finish. Drinks well now but should improve through 2021.
