Generous but not overwhelming wood fights somewhat with the otherwise very spicy and floral-scented nose of exotic dark currant and plum. There is terrific punch while preserving excellent detail on the rich, sleek and mineral-inflected medium weight plus flavors, all wrapped in beautifully long and complex finish. This has the stuffing to almost certainly absorb the wood and it should be excellent in time. (92-94)/2031+
