Medium-to-high aromatics with earthy, oak, red berry, cherry, strawberry and some floral notes that replay very nicely on the balanced palate. It's medium+ bodied with fairly firm tannins, very good acidity and lengthy finish. Cellar this one for at least 2-3 years and enjoy until 2030. Tasted Oct/2015.
