A bit tight on the nose but with impressive clarity to the blackberry, black currant fruit that is underlain with nuanced vanilla, tobacco, caramel, and black pepper aromas. A bit chewy on entry, and showing a bit of reticence though ari brings out spicy, zesty black currant and boysenberry flavors on the palate that are framed with hints of mint, meat, black spice and vaguely stemmy, medicinal accents. The tannins have just a hint of youthful edginess and the acids are nicely integrated lending this a slightly rustic yet fresh appeal in the mouth. The finish turns slightly floral at first, then darker with rich, fresh fruit character of crushed berries and spiced plums barely dusted with black pepper spice and through it all this retains transparency and freshness in the mouth. Eminently drinkable. 88pts
