Earthy, spicy and a little meaty on the nose with lots of beet root and old wood aromas. Rich and almost lush on entry with super acids perking up the midplate and supporting lovely wild raspberry and slightly red curranty fruit. The tannins are ever so edgy, adding some mouthgrab here. This is elegant and refined with a sneaky sweetness to the pure red berry fruit flavors framed with subtle savory notes earth and tea tones. It’s thoroughly engaging though it’s a touch simple and finishes a bit short with some dryness. Has a blend of lightness and palate stickiness that is hard to find. Could certainly improve, as it does over the course of an evening. 90pts
