Quite fresh on the nose with red fruit supported by gentle herb, vanilla and bitter root notes. Soft and smooth on entry, this shows a nice, low and firm base of polished tannins with gentle if fresh wild raspberry and pomegranate fruit layered on top. The tannins are really quite fine here. While this is a touch simple, it is freshly fruited and shows a certain vibrancy on the palate. The tannins pop a bit on the finish, adding more savory depth and a more assertive veneer of oak that is not off-putting. Really honest feeling with a rustic edge that I find appealing. 86pts
