Once again there is enough wood to notice on the extremely earthy and sauvage-infused nose of somber dark berry and plum aromas. The seductively textured yet muscular flavors possess a velvety mouth feel thanks to the abundant amount of dry extract that also buffers the very firm tannic spine on the balanced and impressively persistent finish. This is really quite good and well-worth your attention provided that you have the patience to cellar this beauty for at least 7 to 8 years first. Sweet spot Drink 2029+.
