Dark and full of cocoa, earth and softly plummy fruit on the nose with faint herbal hints. Light, fresh and almost zesty in the mouth with light weight and succulent acidity. the fruit is fresh if a touch earthy in the mouth, slowly yielding notes of creamy chocolate, black currant and black plummy fruit all framed with gentle suggestions of dried herbs. Theres enough tannin here to add some mouthgrab but everything is really very well balanced allowing the fruit to keep the structure covered but not obscured. This turns a bit dry and gently mineral on the modest finish but that doesn’t detract from the package. A great little food wine. 86pts
