An appealing fresh and distinctly cool and restrained nose of red berry fruit and pungent earth aromas is trimmed in soft wood notes. There is excellent intensity and raw power to the big-bodied flavors that are muscular and long if not exactly refined. While there is outstanding length the wood also comes up on the finish and this will clearly require a few years to completely harmonize as it's on the awkward side today. Range: 90-93
