Definitely showing cedary oak on the nose but there’s also some nice soil, floral, and dried herb tones here adding a bit of detail to the small blackberry fruit. This is bright and juicy on entry, really nicely balanced with small tannins supporting attractive blueberry and blackberry fruit. There’s a little floral note in the mouth along with a little peppery spice that all integrate well on the palate and lead to a modest yet clean and refreshing finish with just a hint of licorice showing. This is really just what I would expect from a wine at this price point, though this is not particularly varietally correct it is delicious and well balanced. 87pts
