Bright, dark red. Musky aromas of black raspberry, game, minerals and coffee. Dense and juicy in the mouth, with a distinctly chewy, sappy character leavening the wines thickness of texture. Spreads out nicely and vibrates on the back end. This lightly saline wine is consistent from start to finish but its serious structure calls for five years of aging.
