Wine EnthusiastDon't even think of drinking this wine sooner than ten years from now. Those tight, nervous tannins need time to slowly unwind and the wine presents beautiful aromas of cassis and red cherry that will evolve with aging. At the back of it all are steady tones of spicy tobacco and leather.

Wine SpectatorShows fine depth to its black cherry and black currant flavors, with shades of chocolate in the mix. There's finesse and complexity, but also firm, dusty tannins. This will be an excellent bottle in time.
