This is wiry and lean on the nose. It smells like rocks smashing together over a basket of wild herbs, dandelion greens and wild arugula while chewing on a hand rolled cigarette and some strawberries. Believe it or not, that smells pretty good. On the palate there is marginally less excitement, with a rather tight if seamless and smooth entry that is followed by rich ripe fruit. There’s a touch of pruniness to the fruit here,and lots of dried berry tones. A fine mineral edge and some raspberry and spice notes pop on the rather effusive, fairly tannic finish. This really finishes strongly. Very impressive and most likely in need of a little time to show its best. 91pts
