There is hint of menthol on the overtly sauvage aromas of mostly cool and pungently earthy red berry fruit. There is fine intensity and plenty of muscle to the almost pungently mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that possess outstanding persistence on the well-balanced finish. Note however that this is going to need a very long snooze in a cool cellar as this is particularly robust and very much built for longer-term aging. 91/2018+
