This too is exuberantly fresh with its broad-ranging aromas of intensely earthy red currant, dark raspberry and lovely floral elements. There is excellent richness to the muscular and powerful big-bodied flavors that possess very good mid-palate density while delivering impressive persistence on the austere, serious and very firm finale. Patience will definitely be necessary as this is a classically styled and built-to-age example. (91-94)/2031+
