A little smoky and earthy on the nose with some leathery notes accenting the spicy, candied black berry fruit. There’s a nice streak of vanilla here as well as some spice notes, but the fruit still has the starring role. A little lean on entry, this shows off some pretty aggressive acidity and fine grained yet abundant tannins on entry, all supporting earthy, slightly lean and slightly herbal blackberry fruit. The finish is a bit dry and tough with attractive bitter chocolate notes and fairly noticeable wood tannin on the long finale. A bit raw around the edges, this could stand a year or three in the cellar to see what develops, but I think it will never be generous. 87pts
