Tight on the nose and a little funky with simple red cherry fruit and light brambly accent notes. This is decidedly reticent in the mouth with excellent depth and transparency. The fruit is wild and not sweet in the raspberry end of the spectrum, with wonderful clarity revealing a hint of bitterness and astringency from the minerality that supports a curranty element here. The tannins are very fine-grained, allowing this to slip across the palate and even while closed this shows wonderful inner-mouth perfumes. This needs time in the cellar to really show its best but has decided upside potential. 91pts
