After an initial blast of cheesy, lactic oak, the nose settles on molasses and prune. This feels saturated and tough, with a steady drumming of hard tannins bolstering sweet, dark flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate and peppercorn. A wine that's excellent for its power, it turns a bit raisiny on the finish. Drink now.
