This is fairly herbal on the nose. Nicely complex and fresh with notes of tobacco, coffee grounds, bacon fat and white pepper, with a touch of VA. Rather broad and open knit in the mouth, shows bright, earthy red berry fruit with some gentle vanilla and spice notes rounding out the mid-palate. The finish is rather crisp, bright and focused, showing fine persistence of red fruit. Atypical for sure, but this does have a little core of sweetness that supports the relatively funky flavors. Finishes with a red berry jam and bacon note. 88 pts
