Somewhat akin to the Rinaldi this has an unusually savory and herbal nose with complicating notes of mint and oystershell before turning quite garrigue like. With time one finds quite distinctive tones of used coffee grounds, a balsamic tone, waxt crayon, curing tobacco and toasting pine nuts. unusual but compelling aromatics. Fairly soft in the mouth with lots of soft tannins, good acidity suporting a savory core of fruit which leans to the muchroomy broth end of the spectrum, brightly mineral on the finish with lots of cherry pit fruit and a slight green tobacco note. The palate does not measure up to the complexity of the nose and while it still has some flesh it is a touch too lean. Would love to try this again in the hopes of finding a more youthful example.
