There is a bit more overall oak influence to the cooler and more restrained combination of red and dark berries with similar floral and earth nuances. The bigger difference lies in the tighter and denser medium weight plus flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the beautifully textured, more complex, more structured and more austere finale. In short, there is just more here and if this is bottled separately, when all is said and done it may well rival the Rognets. In a word, terrific.
