Giving little away at this stage but with leather, nutmeg, and floral notes on the nose. Develops a more pronounced spicy character with air exposure. Similarly tight on the palate, but a little patience begins to reveal a core of concentrated fruit emerging from behind the mask of tannins, which linger on a protracted finish. Distant but with solid structure suggesting this wine will be a long keeper—and better for the wait.
