Chalky, earthy and compact on the nose, this did gain complexity in the glass, adding dashes of spicy cherry fruit topped with hints of mint and dill over time. This had impeccable balance and gorgeous fruit that was certainly fading, leaving the wine a little austere in the mouth, but bright and aromatic, though it did not fare well in the glass. This thinned out with air, loosing its core of fruit and showing more medicinal and tarry notes with air. On its own, it probably would have been better received, but in the company revealed its weaknesses. 88 points
