This has red rope licorice on the nose over a lightly spiced core of red fruit, redolent of cherries, plums and lingonberry jam. There’s a gentle top note of wood spice still contributing some additional complexity along with a slightly floral honey note. This is very well balanced, a big wine with no sharp edges. The tannins and acid are firm but well covered by the fruit, which remains fresh and plump. There’s a nice cinnamon spice tone and even a light herbal top note that helps frame the core of fresh plum and lingonberry fruit. The finish firms up nicely and this really shows that old vine depth and balance. Just gorgeous fruit. At peak but still young and firm, and capable of another five years or more of positive evolution in the bottle. Gorgeous finish as well, lightly earthy and spicy but balanced and fairly elegant even if there is a hint of heat. 94pts
