The nose has graphite, cherry, steely and bretty notes, with good intensity, while the medium-full bodied palate offers savoury, earthy aroma replays surrounded by rough tannins that still need some time to soften. Acids are very good. Finish length is medium-long. Blend of 5 local varietals. Let this one sit for at least another 2-3 years. Tasted June/2017. Score: 88+ pts
