The varieties are known to do completely different things in different places.”
Baking spice, marmalade and rich cherry pie layer the mouthfeel. Ripe fig, tobacco leaf, and a slightly smoked meat quality in the finish. Round and supple, with velvety tannins. Good structure should reward aging through 2030.
