Wow, if anything ever smelled like candied, dried chilies it is this! Sweet and finely herbal there is an underlay of dark, cassisy fruit but the smoky chile and black olive tones really dominate the nose. In the mouth the fruit moves to the fore and while this is mostly resolved there is plenty of structure to keep this feeling youthful. The finish shows a bit more evolution with tea and dried herb tones dominating with a eucalyptus top note. Not over complex but complete and fine. 88pts
