Background wood blends with ripe red berry and cassis aromas that precede the palate staining, fullbodied and imposingly powerful flavors that are serious, dense and textured as the mouth feel is almost thick without being heavy and the mouth coating sap gives the false impression that the explosive finish is but lightly structured, which is definitely not the case. This should age for a long, long time yet be approachable young thanks to the superb extract. (93-95)/2020+
