(from purchased grapes). A restrained but highly complex nose features notes of dried flowers, kirsch, plum and earth, all of which is trimmed in enough wood to notice. The attractively textured, intense and solidly concentrated broad-shouldered flavors are supported by relatively fine tannins, all wrapped in an impressively long and powerful finish. This well-balanced effort should amply reward mid-term cellaring though 12 to 15 years should see it at its best. (91-94)/2025+
