($125) Medium ruby-red. Blackberry, raspberry, pepper, exotic brown spices, woodsmoke and sweet vanillin oak on the nose. More tightly wound today than the Landonne, with reticent but sappy flavors of pepper, spice and menthol. Shows a medicinal austerity and comes across as drier today than the Landonne, but there's plenty of verve and texture here. Shows a strong element of caramelly oak through to the finish. This will need a good four or five years of patience.
