This was a bit of a bretty bottle with rubbery, band-aid notes but with many layers of red meat, red wild berry fruit, evolved mushroom notes that handled the brett well. Evolving positively in the glass this gained some fecund soil notes as the raspberry tones gained in intensity and revealed measured tones of licorice and leather with a gentle yet distinct underlay of dried flowers. Just a touch rustic in the mouth with slightly gritty, austere tannins, the fruit retains nice rich, ripeness in the red currant and lingonberry notes. Spicy and a bit rough-hewed this is a gutsy bottle with lots of sweet fruit notes balancing out he austerity of the tannins. A touch simple perhaps but fun to drink. 2008-2012 91pts
