Tight, almost rosebud-like notes greet the nose along with hints of melon, roasting coffee beans and briary wood, all over some lightly jammy raspberry fruit. This is very intense in the mouth with saturating flavors of cherry, carob, nutty oak and macerated herbs. There's a real energy to this, but it's full of New World style. Plenty of oak and wood tannins are balanced by decent acidity, intense wild raspberry and creamy, vanilla-laced black cherry fruit. The finish is long and powerful with tannins and some stickiness contributing to the length, ending with some spicy, almost beefy notes. This is a powerhouse of a wine. Love it or hate it, it does what it does quite well. 92pts
