Powerful, mouth filling, tannic and concentrated, most of this wine is being held back in reserve, waiting for the day when the tannins are resolved, the secondary notes can jump to the forefront and the wine softens its muscular style. There is no denying its quality, but it's equally hard to deny its drinkability at 10 years of age. There is a good sense of purity of fruit that really stays with you behind the massive wall of creamy tannins. But its going to take at least a decade, and probably longer to breach that
wall.
