Reticent on the nose with sweet aromas of coffee and cola plus a hint of rhubarb. This gains nice subtle nuance with some air. A bit tightly knit in the mouth, this is not a big wine but it shows a bit of firmness to the tannins. There are nicely layers of flavor here, dried herbs, well judged oak, soft warm red plum and cherry fruit. It's all knit together very well if in an unassuming package. The finish is fairly long, and show a lovely edge of sour berry fruits and nice ripe fruit tannins with just a hint of vanilla. Subtle and elegant. 88pts
