Captures that benchmark rusticity while offering up a framework of dark terroir character. Really delicious

Wasnt as good as a bottle I had in February. Seemed muted and closed down. Kind of jagged tannins and some bitter harshness.

Very dark and smells like garrique. It is not de stemmed. Leather with raspberry. And notable vege characteristics. Touch of acidity. Inspired!
