Dark, smoky, slightly gamy, and herbal streaked aromas that resemble some dried salumi greet the nose followed by layers of peppery spice, wild mint, nettle, and wild blackberry and black currant fruit. Smooth, broad shoulder, a touch thick but well balanced and powerful in the mouth, this reveal great depth to the macerated black raspberry fruit thats filled with mineral, subtle oak, and black tea, dried herb, and subtle middle eastern spice notes. Powerful and tannic on the finish with a suggestion of bitterness to the mineral and think black cherry skin fruit flavors that finger on the palate, this is a serious wine. A bit strict and austere, I love it and think it has the balance and stuffing to improve with three to five years in the cellar. 90pts
