Fairly oaky and dry on the nose with aromas of tea, old wood, caramel and an earthy/mushroomy edge layered over some dark, spicy fruit. Lots of wine on entry, big and fruit then the acid kicks in almost immediately to add definition and focus. the plate is rich with spicy red fruits, raspberry and even strawberry toned if rather muscular. There’s a fine base of tannins and plenty of acidity for support. The wine comes on like gangbusters but the finish is short and a bit thin, pleasant with it’s tea scented raspberry fruit and gentle mineral notes but underwhelming after the robust palate impression. Aitr tames this rather quickly and the wine loses it’s power and gains more elegance and transparency with earthy wild cherry flavors thrown into the mix. The finish remains the weak link but there’s a lot to like here on the palate. 89pts
