Very earthy and intense dried berries, austere oakiness, blue cheese, little reductive

Huge fan of this producer. The red is medium body with great acidity. Good structure and a beautiful finish.

Yum! Great slight oxidative nose. With spice and dried fruit. Showing more age than I was expecting for a 2009
