Perceptible but not intrusive wood is again present on the ripe but fresh nose of bright red and dark currant, earth and soft spicy nuances. Once again there is an opulent mouthfeel to the very rich, fleshy and generously proportioned larger-scaled flavors that possess good vibrancy on the precise bitter cherry pit-suffused finish where a hint of warmth appears. This austere and very serious effort offers fine depth and persistence while possessing enough structure to repay at least a decade worth of aging. that is quite firmly structured, Patience advised.
