Tight and minerally, with a gravelly edge to the dried currant, cedar and licorice flavors. Full-bodied and well-structured, gaining length and dimension on the finish, where the focus holds and flavors gain. Drink now through 2021.

Good medium ruby-red. Dark raspberry, blackberry, licorice and violet on the nose, lifted by dusty brown spices and mint. Juicy and moderately intense, with good ripeness to the youthfully brooding flavors of dark berries, menthol and bitter chocolate. Still a bit clenched but the dusty tannins are riper than those of the Patzimaro bottling and finish considerably finer-grained.
