Onyx black at the core, with purple streaking throughout, this wine has a reserved fruit nose, releasing only hints of black plum skin. More prominent are non-fruit aromatics of creosote and graphite. Dense in palate-saturating flavor, there is a strong minerality accompanied by roasted black plums and überripe black currants. Full bodied, with a lightly noticeable touch of alcohol, the whole package is nicely supported by tangy acidity and impressively rounded tannins. There’s a lot of pep in this wine, and a bit of bottle age might do it good. Drink from late 2017 through 2020.
