Earthy and a bit sour on the nose with salty plum notes, low nutty oak, some beefy elements and fine black fruit accented with a nuance of juniper. This is a bit dense and almost chewy, though there’s nice acidity here. The tannins are ripe and fairly full, adding to the volume in the mouth. Not a fruit bomb by any stretch of the imagination, this shows ripe plum and black berry fruit paired with modest levels of toasty, nutty oak. Rich and a bit forceful in the mouth, this remains poised and just a little tight right through the moderately long, lightly mineral-laced dried berry finish. Lovely focus. I can see this improving a bit in the bottle. 91 pts
