This is another massive wine that offers layers upon layers of intense complexity. Dried herbs, worn leather, cumin and broken branches provide the start. Super-ripe wild forest berries spread across the palate. The tannins are broad and delightfully rustic. The acidity helps the long finish hold on. Drink now to 2018.
