Not very expressive on the nose with small notes of vanilla tinged sweet raspberry fruit, earth, and daisies joined but suggestions of antiseptic and smoked ham. On the palate this starts with a rush of very ripe yet fresh fruit but then a wall of tough tannins drapes itself over the palate. The fruit, sweet, jammy raspberry peeks out again on the finish but ultimately looses the battle with the dry tannins. This is a nice wine, and perhaps the tannins will resolve, but it is quite aggressive at this early stage. 87pts
