This is both more complex and more aromatically refined as well with a wonderfully layered nose of spiced plum, cassis and violets where additional nuance is added by notes of earth and leather. The attractively, even seductively textured medium weight flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that does a fine job of buffering the otherwise firm tannins and imparts a velvety texture to the dusty, long and serious finish. In a word, terrific. 93/2022+
