Very rich and extracted, with a bright purple hue and legs that could run. The nose is broad and overtly woody, with barnyard nuances adding an interesting and needed rustic touch. The palate offers some burnt or baked fruit and a jolt of espresso, while the finish is smooth and not unlike Port. Best for fans of the thick and rich. —M.S.
