Previously available for $41.99
This is nice and soil-driven with a noticeable bed of oak topped with lovely dried herb, red currant, mint, pepper and gentle toffee aromas. Rich and velvety, this has a lovely muscular yet wiry feel with earthy, slightly roasted red fruits and rich coffee bean and dried herb nuances. The tannins seem fairly resolved here and the acid is bright and well integrated lending this a fine, fresh feel. There’s a real base of earthy, perhaps slightly funky flavors here that sets off the fruit particularly on the cranberry, cherry-toned finish, which shows a top note of dusty minerality. This is old school and not fruit-driven, but is also complex, refreshing and wonderfully succulent. 92pts
