Aged 22 months in two-thirds new French oak, it trumps most estates grand vin.

Complex and powerfully built, with distinctive blackberry and smoky meat aromas and layered, fairly dense flavors of dark plum, licorice and grilled herb that linger toward ripe tannins. Best from through 2028. 2,200 cases made.
