Rich fruit, layered with acidity, stars in a wine that is dense, very much a product of the powerful 2005 vintage. With the concentrated tannins, this is showing that it needs to age, but already the sweet fruits are opulent and soft.
This wine is packed with new wood and woody tannins, but still reveals plenty of ripe fruit. It’s firm now, but should soften into a much more seductive wine. Imported by Paterno Wines International.
