($140) Dark red, but more brown than ruby. Roasted, wild aromas of game, truffle and stewed tomato. Slightly sauvage flavors of gamey red fruits, coffee, cedar and spices; sweet and superripe but with adequate supporting acidity. More pliant than it appeared to be a year ago from barrel. Surprisingly subtle on the firm back end, yet the notes of cedar and coffee seem rather evolved. Perhaps best suited for drinking over the next ten years.

Lush savage wine.... Meaty, smoky, yet fruit rich wine.... Surprisingly powerful attack and mouthfeel... Not a sophisticated, suave wine.... I wonder how this will evolve as I had trouble discerning tannic backbone...
