90-92 Barrel sample. This is rich, full of sweet-and-sour acidity, layers of sweet tannins and big, ripe fruit. It's powerful, intense and full of pure black currant fruit flavors. Ends with great acidity.

90–92. Barrel sample. Very dense, with tannins that are solid and dry, this is an austere wine that has a firm, mineral side. The wine will need time although it's likely to remain severe.
