(spends its first year in barriques, 15% new, then its second year in big casks), Deep red. Dark, rather modern aromas of black cherry, licorice, violet, espresso and minerals. Quite tight and primary but a bit monolithic today, almost like a barrel sample. But shows excellent density to its dark cassis, floral and mineral flavors. Finishes with building tannins and terrific lingering fruit. This will need a minimum of four to six years in the cellar.
