Lovely aromatics of macerated herb stems, grilled beef, violets, sweet wood spice and a hint of minerality come together on the finely balanced and focused nose. A hint of sweetness accentuates the wild cherry and maraschino cherry fruit this shows on entry, along with a hint of vanilla but this quickly gains a bit of tension in the mouth, showing a more faceted texture. The flavors are a bit simple after the nose but attractive with clear and wild berry and plum fruit. This is really very well balanced and show good scale in the mouth with dusty tannins and bright acids supporting the fruit and late arriving floral and herbal nuance before this fades on the modest, slightly mineral finish. This is a winner, I’d love to experiment with this and grilled tuna. 87pts
