This is completely overwhelmed by its wood, from the nose to the finish and while there is good density, it’s not at all clear that this will ever completely integrate the extremely generous oak. What concerns me even more than having residual wood on the nose even in full maturity is what the oak is likely to do to the texture of the wine, which in my experience is never a positive trait. We of course will see in time but I would advise caution. (89-92?)/2022+
