Rubis légèrement Bruni . Nez sur les fruits noires épices figues. Attaque pleine dense suave. Épices tres present et gourmand par sa suavité . Note de cacao de figues. Petite rusticité tannique mais épices très très long

This was on its A-game straight out of the bottle: some dried blackberries and cherries, but mostly smokey, mineral, and delicious volcanic ASH! The tannins have softened and there's just enough acidity to balance them--in a great place to drink now.
