Previously available for $39.99
Deep blueberry, raspberry, tobacco leaf and pencil lead notes greet the nose, along with some nice toasty cookie notes. A touch sweet up front, this is rich yet transparent with fine tannins and well-integrated acidity. The fruit is lovely, fresh and focused with red plum and wild raspberry notes. This is elegant and finely balanced with lovely mineral and very lightly herbal notes on the back end. That leads to a tight, focused finish which fades into a bit of an oaken wash on the finale. Give this a bit of time for the wood to integrate and this should be fabulous. Little bit of black cherry cough syrup on the finale. 93pts
