Young and muted at the moment. But knowing Groth... this will come thru in 5+ years.

Great texture. Nice, dark fruit core with some bright, red current on the finish with a cleansing acidity.

Structure and length are remarkable here. Building power for many years to come. Dryer and more tannic style can, almost absent of fruit with rugged and dusty, chalkiness dominating the flavor profile. I like these wines young when they have some ferocity to them.

2013. Hard to find too many flaws in this one.

Subtle yet seductive fruit with great earthy tannins. The aroma alone is intoxicating. Fragrant and fulfilling. Drink often with friends.
