Tasting Notes

Big, rich and somewhat austere black earthy fruit is followed by intense, well structured flavors underpinned by a solid but ripe tannic backbone. There is lots of structure here and this is built to age though there appears to be sufficient mid-palate density to buffer the tannin as it ages. I would suggest trying this again in another 6 to 7 years as the finish is somewhat astringent at present. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes.
