A lithe, long and intense red, with forthcoming aromas of woodsy undergrowth, mushroom, cherry and flowers gathering elements of iron, tobacco and tar on the palate. Today, the back end is framed by big tannins, yet all the components are in the right proportions. Best from 2024 through 2042. 277 cases made, 90 cases imported.
