This is decidedly herbal and smoky on the nose, with a lot of dried herb and grassy aromas accenting the cocoa- and leather-scented black currant and black berry fruit. This is surprisingly soft on entry with a smooth, glossy mouth feel supporting lovely spiced plum and blackberry fruit flavors. The tannins are ripe and polished, with a creamy edge. The flavors are fresh and pure with some acidity coming up on the back end, refreshing the palate for the moderately long, toasty oak-accented blackberry finish. A touch more acidity would be welcome here but this is quite attractive. 87pts
