Entirely varietal from one appellation and aged in 100% new French oak tanks for more than two years, this is a substantially robust and tannic wine, puckering somewhat on the palate. Red berry, coconut and a strong herbal component combine for a leathery grip and need for cellaring. Enjoy best from 2022 through 2030.
