($150; blended with 3.5% each merlot and petit verdot; 15.2% alcohol) Bright ruby. Superripe aromas of kirsch and gravel, plus hints of licorice and dusty herbs; still quite youthfully unforthcoming. Dense and sweet but not at all over the top; shows a hot rock character and pronounced minerality that reminds me of Graves. The slightly liqueur-like quality continues on the palate, but this backward wine needs time to express itself. Finishes solidly tannic, with a pungent licorice quality and firm, dusty tannins. Showing the masculine side of cabernet.
