Pitch black at the core, with a minerally but otherwise reserved nose, this tastes of graphite, ground black pepper and plum preserves. There is a light prickle on the palate that offers a slight boost to the medium-plus acidity and lightly sticky tannins. Full in body yet straightforward in flavor, with a clipped finish, this is one for the bold wine enthusiasts to enjoy in its youth. Drink now–2024.
