A much earthier and less elegant nose features notes of various dark berries and a hint of game-like nuance. There is both good detail and a lovely underlying tension to the middle weight flavors that are not quite as refined but offer a bit more complexity on the lingering finish where the intensity and power really build from the mid-palate. This should amply repay mid-term cellaring. (90-92)/2027+
