Spicy, minty and fleshy on the nose with aromas of pink peppercorns and toasted nuts over a base of taut red and black fruit that reminds me of red and black raspberry candies. This is dark and tall on entry, really shows lots of height in the mouth and relatively little breadth as it seems tightly wound but offers up plenty of black cherry and black raspberry fruit framed with wood spice and hints of caramel and vanilla. This is rather tight and rigid today with lots of powdery tannins on the palate. It’s both well defined structurally and rather opaque if rich with flavor at the same time. A bit in the Icon Wine style. Obviously has plenty of potential but today this is a bit tough and chewy and while the oak is well integrated it’s presence is definitely felt. 89pts
