A completely different aromatic profile exhibits an earthy and brooding combination of purple fruit, smoke, humus, earth and a hint of animale. There is more size and weight as well to the concentrated flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract that also serves to buffer the markedly firm finale. This sleek but muscular effort is even tighter and will need a minimum of a decade of cellaring and 12 to 15 would be better still. Outstanding.
