This is a powerful wine with fabulous aromas and flavors of black truffles, dried meat, spices and very ripe fruit. Hot stones, too. Full body, chewy tannins, yet this is polished and pretty. Velvety texture. First year for the new owner. Wait until 2018.

On the toasty, more modern side of the spectrum, with ambitious roasted fig, apple wood and blueberry confiture notes followed by racy graphite, espresso and blackberry pâté de fruit. Not shy, but has the density for balance. Best from 2013 through 2024.
