Very concentrated and ripe, with all of the daintyness of an offensive tackle dancing a jig. At this early age the wine has some spine, but it will likely grow soft and lose clarity over time. For now, expect huge doses of smoked meat, soft-ish tannins, and lush black fruit. It's a dense, high-octane wine that would go great with any sort of stew, like wild boar or venison.
