Wonderful on the bouquet, where earthy notes blend perfectly with alert, bright fruit aromas. This is a sizable, full-bodied wine with leather, lively fruit character and a dose of rich chocolate. It's in excellent shape and shows impressive balance and depth. Delicious to the core, with heft and noticeable oak that should lessen if given more time. Drink now–2019.
