Combining richness and structure, this is a beautifully ripe wine. The wood aging is still showing strongly, although there is already opulent competition with the apricot and peach fruits that are cut with orange zest acidity. A strongly textured charactergives the wine an impressive shape and long-term aging. Drink from 2019.
