Still very deeply colored. The wood treatment, along with a touch of menthol, remains evident on the still quite youthful nose of very
ripe yet fresh dark berry scents that are laced with a lovely array of earth, game, spice, leather and sauvage hints. There is fine density
and excellent power to the overtly muscular big-bodied flavors that conclude in a strikingly long, robust and well-balanced finale where
the only nit is a hint of warmth. Unlike several of the wines in the range where there is still an ample amount of tannin to resolve but
not necessarily the underlying material to assure a successful conclusion, here it appears that everything is in place. In sum, this is still
young but wonderfully promising.
