Very strong wood presently dominates the nose and pushes the ripe and distinctly earthy mix of red and black pinot fruit aromas to the background though the big, robust and powerful flavors are amply endowed by dry extract and a textured, concentrated and velvety finish. This is impressive as it's a big though not particularly elegant wine.
Red-ruby. Reduced, meaty aromas of leather and spice. Rich but backward, with firm acidity accentuating the somewhat rustic leather and pepper character of this very young wine. There's a lot of material-and tannin-here, but this extremely unevolved sample is hard to assess.
A hint of animal marks this stern, tight-fisted red. Cherry, mineral and spice flavors are closed up for the moment, and this needs time to develop. Yet the lasting impression is more sweet than dry. Best from 2009 through 2018.
