Bright medium ruby. Brooding, liqueur-like aromas of black fruits, violet and bitter chocolate are quite powerful but youthfully reticent. Densely packed, fine-grained and highly concentrated, with its thick black fruit flavors framed and enlivened by surprisingly fresh acidity for such a ripe wine. Really superb texture and depth for a wine from this producer. Finishes with powerful but well-buffered tongue-coating tannins and outstanding, slowly rising length. There's no easy sweetness here, but this compellingly rich, utterly primary wines really saturates the palate. Great potential here. (ST)
Subtle notes of wood and menthol add breadth to the densely fruited nose of plum, dark berries, spice and abundant earth and sauvage scents. There is outstanding richness and concentration to the notably powerful and serious middle weight plus flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the rustic and mineral-inflected finale where the wood nuances displayed by the nose resurface.
