Intensely sweet, super-ripe, cassissy fruit to smell—a most seductive nose; full-bodied, tannic, fairly extracty wine; very ripe fruit within a distractingly tough and chewy tannin, and with very good length; however, almost astringent in its texture, which destroys the harmony of what is clearly a fine core flavor; a good terroir, just rather coarsely framed? 2020–30+.
