An overtly floral and sauvage-suffused nose reflects notes of plum and an assortment of wild dark berry aromas. There is almost painful intensity to the markedly stony and muscular flavors that manage the trick of being impressively rich but also very well-detailed, all wrapped in a gorgeously complex, persistent and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is finer than it usually is but don't be fooled as it's very much built-to-age.
100% whole bunch, 50% new oak. Bright crimson. Polished, seductive, bright cherry fruit on the nose. Pretty smart with a bit oak showing but good, precise fruit in the ascendant. Ambitious. Drink between 2027-2040.
