Toasty and frankly woody on the nose, this reveals a lovely vanilla flavored candied cherry note with air and gains sweetness as it sits in the glass. A bit tough on entry with some raw tannins to sort out, there is a nice core of fruit here, red fruits and savory with a rustic edge that I find appealing. This is pretty structured with the acid becoming obvious on the palate and lending a cranberry tone to the moderately long finish which ends with some woody tannins and fine coconutty nuance. A tight and tough little wine but one that should blossom with several more years in the bottle. 90pts
