This is a bit lean on the nose yet quite aromatic with notes of hot rocks, middle eastern spice, macerated flowers, packed earth, hot iron, crushed vitamin and medicinal cherry lozenge tones. Lean and herbal on entry with the hard structure of a younger wine. The big tannins continue to dominate the palate allowing only lean, minerally strawberry toned fruit to peek past the wall. Slowly sweet fruit squeezes through the tannins but this requires additional time before we’ll see it performing at peak. 91pts
