Big, deep, wooly and earthy on the nose full of coffee tinged dark cherry that shows an attractive hint of torrefaction and gentle hints of blackberry all topped with hints of balsam and pollen. Really gorgeous on the nose. Powerful yet finely defined in the mouth with good clarity to the rich, slightly blocky blackberry fruit that is long and persistent in the mouth with a clear and intense mineral base. This really is lovely with a fantastic nose but it comes off as just a bit simple on the palate though it is packed with fresh, crisp fruit. This finishes with admirable power and it is a big wine, though so very young but with age this should blossom beautifully. 93pts
