This is the first vintage of the new label from this winery whose name means “wildness,” and it's a fascinating wine. The wine is dark, very dense, and very pure, with black currant fruit, and leather and cedar. The tannins are firm and grippy. The finish is long and spicy, and as a result, the wine's potential is considerable. —S.H.
