Rich, silky, lush, concentrated, fresh and focused on ripe plums, licorice, black cherries and espresso bean that are further complicated by floral notes. This is still quite young. Yet, due to its ripe tannins and round textures, with air, you can drink this today. Or let it sleep for a few more years if you have patience.
