Dense but pure, offering suave plum, raspberry coulis and black currant fruit, and tobacco, tar and iron nuances. This is integrated and refined through the long finish, but lacks the vintage's austerity. Very nicely done. Best from 2017 through 2025.  –JM

On the rustic side, with strong bay and chestnut leaf notes and a peppery meatiness up front, followed by slightly chewy black currant and blackberry fruit flavors. Shows lots of charcoal on the dusty finish, while the leafy elements flicker in and out. Displays flesh and dense fruit, but lacks purity and may not be for everyone. The peppery note wins out in the end. Best from 2014 through 2028.

Very fresh and pure, with bright cherry and plum sauce flavors that glide along, carried by a singed vanilla bean note. Picks up more iron and tobacco details with air and stretches out slowly. A touch shy on density but very well-rendered, delivering cut and definition. Drink now through 2022 –JM
