Wine EnthusiastPacked with tannins and new wood, this wine has a dark character. At this stage, it is more tannin than fruit, with heavy extraction. Only at the end does some jammy fruit show through. Judging by its final weight, though, it will mature well.

Wine SpectatorDark, but still tangy, with a nice black tea note running through the fleshy dark plum, black currant and licorice notes. A smoky edge fans out on the full-bodied finish, where good minerality lingers. Drink now through 2014.
