Wine & Spirits ReviewAll the components of this huge wine fit together well, so the impression of size and power reads more like firm grip, robust flavor and tremendous length. Pinot Noir (60 percent of the blend) lends musky spice. The structure and the fact that the wine keeps getting better with air suggest this has a long life ahead.
