Despite cool conditions in 2013, this wine is sufficiently dense, ripe and strapping, with full berry and cassis aromas along with grit and animal notes. The palate is rugged, high in acidity and a touch hollow in the middle. Rattling flavors of blackberry and cassis finish edgy and gripping. Best from 2018–2025.
