This wine is a beast of overt aromas. Smelling of peat fire, beef jerky, soy sauce, graphite and nougat, it is an aromatically crazy, exotic wine in a most fun way. The attack immediately saturates the palate with dense extract, truckloads of flavor and chunky tannins that are delightfully choppy and dusty. The acidity is supporting, though discreet, letting the tannins do the heavy lifting for this weighty wine. The fruit is deeply ripe, to the tune of showing some pruny flavors. Nonetheless, it’s an overall attractive wine, with only lightly overt oak tones that many will thoroughly enjoy. Drink now–2019.
